"And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been."
We are in full tilt birthday party prep, so today's tutorial is going to be a quick one. I wanted to come up with a NYE star crown that was quick, kid-friendly, and fun...bonus points if it entailed using up some of the empty cardboard TP rolls that are taking over my studio drawers. Mission accomplished!
cardboard TP rolls
paint, Kwik Stix, chalk markers
ribbon and/or skinny elastic cord
cut paper stars
skinny gold or silver wire
1. Paint your cardboard tube. 2. After your paint dries cut one end of your tube in a zigzag crown shape. 3. Hot glue 1-3 bent wires to the inside of your crown. 4. Cut out paper stars and add glitter or designs. 5. Hot glue your star shapes to the end of your wire pieces. 6. Attach ribbon or elastic band to the lower inside section of your crown (party hat style). 7. Place crown on your head like you are royalty.
