Make a little crown for a little one to engage in some pretend play.
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.
How to Make a Felt Crown with Adjustable Straps
Grab some felt and let’s make learn how to make a quick felt craft for dressup.
- purple craft felt
- green craft felt
- Dollar Store jewels
- copy paper (for template)
- glue gun
- Gather supplies and make a template from copy paper (or use Google to find a free one).
- Cut the first piece of the crown from the template. Next cut the second color for the other piece of the crown.
- Cut the head strap pieces and secure to the main color felt on the sides (just about 1-inch strips that are long enough to slightly overlap when fastened with Velcro).
- Decide where you want the front accent color (I chose to have purple showing as a border) and glue them together.
- Finally, cut two small pieces of Velcro and glue or stick the hook one side to either of the straps.
- Let the kids bedazzle their crowns with jewels, stickers, or anything they'd like.
