How to make a birthday crown (Free Pattern) Instructions:

Step 1 – Cut out the pieces to the crown

Once you’ve gathered all your materials it’s time to cut out the elements.

Using the free SVG or pdf pattern provided cut out 2 of the crown from felt (this will be the interior and exterior).

Then cut out 1 of the interfacing.  

Note: if you’re making it out of craft foam or cardstock you’ll just need to cut 2 of the tiara

For the fabric crown  cut two 4 inch strips of fold over elastic.

For other materials cut a 2 inch by 6 inch strip to place the crown on the head.

Step 2 – Begin to make the Crown

If you aren’t sewing the crown, you can skip this step.

Time to make the crown sandwich.

Place the interfacing (glue side down) and iron onto one of the felt exterior pieces. Center it so there is a border all around the interfacing.

Next line up the other exterior piece on top of the piece with the interfacing

Step 3 – Sew around the crown

Pin or clip the crown together.

Using an edging foot, sew around the crown.

Step 4 – Add some embellishments to your crown

Using a glue gun, glue on embellishments.  I opted for some jewels on my regular felt version but you could use a number of things.  For the felt you can use HTV, embroidery, beads, jewelry charms, buttons, etc.  Just look around your house or junk drawer – I bet you can find everything your need! I decided that the glitter rose gold was plenty sparkly on it’s own – and didn’t add jewels

Step 4 – Make the birthday crown wearable

Now that you’re done decorating it’s time to add the elastic to the back so you can wear it. Sew it on on side.

Then sew it to the other. Place the birthday crown on your head and let the party begin!
