Make: Paper Crowns

by Cat on February 22, 2011

If anyone is looking for a way to hang party favors, I have a quick and easy suggestion…  A sheet of burlap with glued clothespins goes a long way.  I used it to hang the paper crowns for my Zilla’s first birthday last year and hauled it out because his second is quickly approaching…I might be clipping the parting favors on it this time around.

And for the paper crowns? I went nuts when Target released the Liberty of London print collection last year.  I bought their file folders and cut them into crowns (felt backed them).  From the scraps I created little wands and a pocket to hold them on the burlap hanging.  I rummaged through my assortment of vintage ribbons and finished them off…  I’ll tell you this much, the paper crowns were much easier than the macaroon tower I managed to bungle!

Love the crowns! I am not much of an artist, what did you use as a guide for the crown designs or did you just freelance?

I free-handed them which was much easier than it seems…
The crowns all came out a little “different” which was nice!
You can also use a pencil to trace shapes on the backside of the paper and cut using that. All you have to do is create your first one and then use that as your template. Goodluck!
