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 DIY birthday crown!

This little crown was easily my favourite part of her birthday outfit!

How to Make Your Own DIY Birthday Crown

Cricut pattern for a birthday crown

To begin, I used my Cricut Explore Air 2 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!

  1. OMG she is adorable, those cheeks! My daughter just had a birthday (she turned 7) and she insisted on making a crown. Our was not as fancy as this one. When my daughter turned 1 I had her wear a tutu also, I figured I should take advantage of the girly-ness while she lets me.

    1. I know! I had to take advantage of that fact that she has no choice in what she wears right now! Over the top girly was the way I chose to go too :)

  2. I love it! I wanted to make one for my daughter’s second birthday but ran out of motivation. Maybe I’ll just make one just because. They are adorable.

  3. Thank you so much for sharing this. I actually need to make a crown like this for my niece’s first birthday. It is so adorable!!

    Thanks for linking up at the TGIF Hop.

    1. I’m glad you stopped by! Isn’t it adorable?! I’m sure your niece would look precious in a crown like this too!
