A Wee Lil Princess Crown Tutorial

Thank Morgan for letting me come back and start my crafting tutorials again. I took quite a bit of time off in order to take care of personal family health issues, but now I am back in the saddle! This is a tutorial on my Newborn princess crowns, as always feel free to make and sell these items but you are not allowed to (alter) and sell this tut in anyway or fashion. Also please credit Morgans blog as it is always nice to credit the source :) I know that you may have seen these wee lil crowns around but who wants to pay 14.00 for one? Here is how to make your own.

-1 can of starch (or extra hold hairspray)
-A roll of lace
-Fabri Tac glue
-Fabric tape measure (not pictured)

First take your lace roll and tape measure and cut it to “about” 9 inches (give or take) in order to fit the newborns head. I bought this roll of lace from Wal Marts craft/ribbon section.

Next grab your handtowel, your cut piece of lace, and your hairspray. Hairspray (or starch) your lace piece and lay it atop your folded towel. Fold your towel in half covering your lace piece and iron over the top of the towel several times. After your lace piece seems very stiff (may take several hairspray applications and ironing) flip it over and repeat on the other side.

Now take your starched lace piece and apply just a wee bit of Fabri Tac to the end of your lace piece and glue the ends together. This should take about a good 15-30 seconds to dry.

  1. Thank you! No, I don't want to pay $14 either so have my lace ready to go, and who'd have thought a can of hairspray would have done the trick? So simple!
