Kayleigh's Crafts - Make Your Own Washi Tape Crown











Hello!


Today we're making a washi tape crown!

To make these yourself, have a look at our YouTube video or follow this step-by-step guide.  

You will need:

  • Cardboard Tube
  • Washi Tape
  • String or Elastic
  • Scissors
  • Sharp Pencil or a hole punch


Step 1:

Take your first washi tape, and wrap it around the base of your cardboard tube. Make sure to keep your tape as straight as possible to the edge of the cardboard. 




You can cover your tube with the same tape or you can layer like we have below. Cover your tube with washi tape, making sure to keep each layer as straight as possible. Try to keep the overlap lines in the same place to keep the front of your crown looking smooth.




Step 2:

Decide which end of your tube will be the top of your crown. Cut long triangles into the top of your crown.

We went down to the third layer of washi tape, but you can make as many triangles as needed and as deep as you'd like. 


Step 3:

Take your sharp pencil or hole punch and carefully make a hole either side of your crown, about 1cm from the base. 

Make sure the line where your washi tape meets up is at the back of your head and your holes line up. 



Take your string or elastic and tie each end through each hole, double knotting if needed. 



When you're done... 

Think of some other ways you could attach your crown to your head. We added our crown to a headband but you could put it onto a hair clip or a bobby pin.
