Simple Felt and Elastic Crowns

I made these for my daughters birthday party favors! They turned out so cute and the kids wore them for the whole party! My kids are still wearing them a month later!

(Stayed on during eating, presents, cake and even swimming!)


Princess Crowns


Boys were coming to the party too so I made kingly crowns as well!


Start with two pieces of craft felt, pin them together so that you can cut out the shape of a crown.


Depending on how stretchy your elastic is you will have to test it around you kiddos head. I used 1/8th Braided Elastic-047

Cut it and pin it into one side of the crown.


Start sewing on the side with the elastic so that it is secured.


Try to sew evenly around the crown stopping and turning the crown as needed.


when you get to the other side insert the other end of the elastic and continue sewing till you meet your first stich.


Trim off any excess.


Then just hot glue on jewels or sew on buttons or even sequins!


You can get 4 crowns from 2 pieces of felt! That makes this project super cheap and easy!
