  • 3 pieces paper doilies
  • watercolor paint
  • brush
  • 2 sheets cardstock
  • glitter
  • spray glue


  • Ideally you should use different size doilies one for the center and two smaller ones for the sides. But this is not necessary, you can play around if you only have one size. That’s what we did, by double folding the side paper doilies to make them smaller than the center paper doily.
  • Fold all doilies in half and paint using the desired colors.
  • Allow to dry completely before moving to the next step.
  • Spray some glue over the colored part then sprinkle glitter. Set the glitter in place with a second light coat of spray glue. Allow to dry.
  • Meanwhile prepare the headbands. Use cardstock to create a long headband or use paper, folded a few times until you get the desired stiffness.
  • When the doilies are dry, sandwich the headband between the folded doilies. If the doilies are too big fold the bottom one more time. Add glue to the inside of the doilies, along the fold. You’ll need a big doily in the center and two smaller ones on the sides.
  • Pu the crown on our kids and measure to fit.
  • Secure with a piece of tape or glue.
