Your rating: None
If you don’t know, how to make paper a crown, you will find making this crown easy. It can be used for any kind of celebration. If you involve your children, in the making of them, they will need minimal supervision. You can make them, as decorative as you want.
What you'll need: 
Empty cereal boxes or thin card
Gift wrap or decorative paper
Glue or sticky tape
Cut a strip of card, roughly three or four inches wide, and it should overlap a little round your head.
Cut a piece of the decorative paper, the same length as the strip of card. It should be at least one inch wider.
Glue the decorative paper onto the card strip, and make sure the bottom edges are in line. Let the glue dry.
Use a pair of scissors to cut out any shape you want, along the top edge of the decorative paper. It can be a heart, zigzag or rounded shapes.
You can get creative now. Decorate the decorative paper side with plastic jewels, sequins or sparkling stickers. Let the glued parts dry off.
Fold the crown into a circle, make sure the cardboard is facing inwards, and the decorated part is facing outwards. Place the end parts together so they overlap each other, glue them together or use sticky tape.
Making crowns can be a great activity, if you have a group of children to look after. If you can’t think of what, to do with children at birthday parties. This is one idea, will help to keep their attention. You just need to give them extra help, when cutting the shapes of the crown.
You can make the crown strip longer or wider, if you making it for an adult size head. Just add extra cut strips to the end, overlap them and glue together.
You can use construction card, to cut out the top and bottom strip of the crown. The card is much firmer and, you just use the same instructions as above.
Use safety scissors with young children, and assist them.
