How to Make a Valentine Crown
Read all of the steps before starting.
- Step 1: Project Preparation
Read through the project, then gather the materials needed to make the
Valentine crown. Cover your work area with
newspaper to catch drips and splatters. Tip:
To shorten the crafting time, cut and paint the crowns in advance.
- Step 2: Cut Plate
Cut a slit across the middle of the paper plate, starting and
ending about one inch from the rim. For younger children, have an adult
or older child start the cut.
Cut four more slits from the center of the plate to the rim,
creating six pie-shaped wedges.
Fold all the wedges up to form the points of the crown.
- Step 3: Paint
Paint the crown on both sides with red paint and let it dry. The
crown can also be painted with gold or silver, or any colors and
designs the child chooses.
Tip: If the points curl, straighten them with
your fingers when the paint is dry to the touch.
- Step 4: Decorate
Decorate the crown by gluing a conversation heart to each point.
Let the children use their imaginations to decorate the crowns
any way they like. Ribbons are a nice addition.
Tip: Hearts cut from paper can be substituted
for the conversation candies. Decorate the paper hearts with glitter
or stickers, or write special messages on each heart.
Now crown your prince or princess!
