This will get you the base for an easy, quick, reversible felt crown that can be customized with jewels, felt animals, flowers, or anything else your 2-year-old can stick on it. It was remarkably simple to whip out and we had everything on hand and you might, as well.

Tips for Making a Felt Crown

  • If you don’t have velcro, pick up a small package. You could stick a piece of elastic in the back to make it adjustable.
  • A hot glue gun was my preferred method because it doesn’t have a strong smell like craft glues, but you could use them.
  • Sheets of craft felt are inexpensive and I recommend using it instead of the bolted felt.

Oh, and you can further embellish it very easily! I made a felt monkey and lion last year for Elise to play with and had the foresight (very rare) to put a hooked piece of velcro on the backs before hand sewing them up. They were perfect for our DIY felt board.
Ta da! You are done… Unless you want to embellish it just a little with some Dollar Store jewels left over from the treasure hunt you had last week.
