Make the little girl in your life feel just like a star with an adorable DIY Princess crown! This glittery princess crown makes a great addition to a birthday party too!
A DIY princess crown is a must for any royal beauty and my little munchkin is no exception. She loves dressing up as a princess and her favorite part is choosing her crown (her favorites were the lace crowns we made a while back). She’s also super girly and anything glitter and tulle is right up her alley so coming up with this glitter crown made total sense!
This simple but oh so adorable craft idea uses such simple materials you most likely have on hand such as toilet paper rolls, glitter, mod podge and tulle. It makes a great way to recycle some of those bad boys lol

DIY Princess Crown
- toilet paper tubes
- measuring tape
- craft scissors
- modge podge
- thin elastic
- hot glue gun
- hot glue sticks
- Using a measuring tape, measure around your paper tube, decide how large you want the “spikes” in your crown and make marks with your marker pen, at about 1/3 down the length of the paper tube. I made mine about 1″ wide.
- Measure the distance between 2 marks and find the middle then start cutting the spikes from that point, towards the marks, first to the mark on one side then to the mark on the other side.
- Using a thick brush apply modge podge all over the tube and immediately sprinkle glitter; try and distribute the glitter evenly. Set aside to dry.
- Apply a second layer of modge podge then another one of glitter and leave to dry.
- Apply a third and last layer of modge podge and leave to dry.
- Meanwhile gather a strip of tulle, using your sewing machine or by hand and arrange it in a circle.
- Cut a piece of elastic, long enough to go around your head and join the ends together with a knot.
- Hand sew the knot area to the gathered tulle circle.
- Once the modge podge is dry, apply embellishments to your crown, using a hot glue gun.
- Apply hot glue to the bottom of the crown and press it on the tulle circle, elastic side down.
- And you’re done! Your beautiful DIY princess crown is ready to wear. Enjoy!
