It is my final day of sharing my daughter’s adorable 1st birthday outfit with the world :)
Over the past two days, I shared how I made her birthday onesie, and her birthday tutu. Now, I get to share the SUPER simple birthday crown!
This little crown was easily my favourite part of her birthday outfit!
How to Make Your Own DIY Birthday Crown
To begin, I used my Cricut Explore to find a flat image of a crown that I liked. I found the one above, and figured that I would need about 8 inches of vinyl to go around my daughter’s head, so I set the piece to 8 inches, and then cut it out on vinyl :) I also cut out a “1” in a font I liked, on the same sheet of vinyl.
Next, I ironed the vinyl crown, and the “1” into the felt, as per the instructions (for more information on how to cut vinyl, read here). Once the shapes were ironed on, I cut them out by hand. I left a purple felt outline around the “1” so that the number would stand out and be readable on the gold crown
I measured the elastic so that it would fit around her head, and attached the two ends. I sewed them together, but you could use the E6000 to attach them as well. Then I got gluing!
I glued the “1” onto the crown and let it set. Then glued the ends of the crown together and let that set. Finally, I glued the elastic onto the bottom of the crown and let that set. TA-DA!
She looked like a little princess on her birthday, and I LOVED every minute of it!
