One of the most important things a queen wears is her crown. Create a crown to make a queen costume complete, let little girls play "queen" or crown someone "queen for a day." Crowns can be made out of anything you have around the house; foam, cardboard, even construction paper. Decorate your queen crown to make it personal and truly feel like a queen.
Draw the design of your queen's crown on paper. Draw only the front wrapping section. Most crowns have several points and curved angles.
Cut out the design, this is your template. Trace the template design onto a piece of foam, cardstock or cardboard. Cut out the design.
Decorate the crown with markers, paint, crayons and coloured paper to cover the base of the crown. Add embellishments, such as rhinestones, feathers, beads and stickers. Glue on the embellishments and let dry for several minutes.
Hold the crown up to the person's head. Measure around the person's head from one end of the embellished crown front to the other end. Add 1 inch to this measurement. This is the length of your crown backing.
Draw a piece of backing in the same material as the crown. It should be the length you measured (plus 1 inch). The width of the backing should be approximately 1.5 inches. Cut out the backing. Glue the ends of the backing to the ends of the crown front. Cross over the ends approximately 1/2-inch when gluing. Let dry for 5 minutes.
