    Glue the bottom edge of each triangle, evenly spaced, along the top edge of the headband. Wait for the glue to dry and glue or staple the ends of the headband piece together to fit the head of the child it belongs to.

    Now the crown can be decorated with various craft materials, including:

    • Sequins
    • Rhinestones
    • Pom-poms
    • Dimensional paint
    • Crayons, markers or colored pencils
    • Pipe cleaners

    Wait for the glue to fully dry before allowing the crown to be used during play time.
