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!
