The crown – I found this one on clearance after Christmas at Target. It was an ornament that I bought on a whim but knew I could use it for something with three little princesses running around.
Black or White felt – white would have been better but I only had black so that’s what I used
White Boa – I found this one at Michaels
A regular baby headband (it won’t be damaged in the making of the headband so you can use a good one)
A couple of hair clips. (I used an alligator clip from a broken hairbow and a plain hair clip.)
Hot Glue Gun
I used a pair of pliers to bend the hanger part of the ornament down.
Then I cut a piece of felt slightly larger than the base of the crown for it to sit on. I thought the bottom of the crown itself might be too hard for my little princess (plus is was an additional place to glue the feathers).
I hot-glued the crown to the felt.
Then I glued the feathers to the felt base of the crown by slowly wrapping it around as I glued.
Finally, I took two clips and hot-glued them to the bottom of the felt so that I could attach it to the headband without messing the original headband up.
Lastly, I attached the headband to the crown and tried it on my little princess! Mine ended up a little top heavy due to the weight of the crown but she does pretty well with it. How cute is she? She definitely has our hearts. I cannot wait to see how her first birthday pictures turn out!
