DIY Birthday Crown

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!

Materials:

Cricut Explore
Felt
Gold Vinyl
White hair elastic 
Scissors
E6000 Glue

How to Make Your Own DIY Birthday Crown

Cricut pattern for a 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!

  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. 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.
