Cricut Craft: Birthday Crown

by Kelsey Norwood

in Crafts,Cricut,Tutorials

For Elliot’s second birthday, I made him his very own birthday crown. I missed Gus’s first birthday (he had to wear Elliot’s) but I got around to it this year!

I did Elliot’s out of felt and it was a huge pain, so I was really putting it off. But this time I used craft foam and it was so much smarter of me.

I cut a crown with my Cricut (from the Sweet Treats birthday cartridge) and the letter C from Simply Sweet (my favorite font cart).

I used the crown to make a pattern on file folder. The band is 2″ wide and 15″ long and I centered the crown on the band.

And I hot glued the C (cut out of regular felt) and two star buttons (for his # of years) on the front.

I punched a hole in each side of the band and tied it around his head with a shoe lace. I’m looking for that plastic coil stuff for a more permanent solution.

I love it! And so much easier than felt…

I’ll upload the crown pattern as soon as I have a minute to think straight…

And Gus loves balls, all kinds of balls, but I’m partial to basketball so we had basketball cake! He was thrilled.
