Goddess crowns can be anything from a simple twist of willow, grapevine or honeysuckle to an elaborate construction reminiscent of Egyptian, Sumerian or Japanese goddesses. Goddess crowns exist in the art history of many cultures. Replicate simple versions of authentic crowns from paper materials or use them as examples for mixed media creations. Starting with natural elements as a base, these crowns incorporate found materials or plant matter to simulate a goddess crown from any culture.

- Moderately Easy
Things you need
- Florist wire
- Wire cutters
- Laurel leaves
Wind or braid some flexible plant material to form a round wreath shape that fits the perimeter of the wearer's head. Tuck the plant ends into the shape to hide them.
Add found natural materials, such as leaves, flowers, petals or cones to the base. Tuck them into the form or tie them with twine or florist wire. Cut and turn any sharp ends.
Attach costume or real jewellery to the evolving crown. Drape beads so they hang down at intervals; make some of these drapings have a few tiers.
Position a prominent focal piece in the centre front of the crown.
Drape one or more veils onto the crown base. Ancient Sumerian goddesses wore turbans, so twist and tuck fabric into the top, if you desire.
Dangle some beads from the temple area. Attach them to hang across the edge of the face. Multiple beading here is effective as goddess headgear.
Form paper flowers or other paper creations as components to your goddess crown. The whole crown can be built on a paper headband.
Use laurel leaves for another simple goddess crown base; these can be the actual plant or a paper rendition. These were used in many ancient cultures. Twist or tie them in a crown shape.
