How to Make a 4th of July Crown

By Mary Monahan, Publisher of Macaroni Kid Lincoln, NE June 27, 2017

This 4th of July crown is easy to make and really inexpensive! It costs me a whopping $2.

What you'll need: 

  • 4th of July table decor or wreath-style decoration (dollar store)
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors

What you do:

Step 1: Curl the ribbon. I used red, white, blue, and silver.

Step 2: Use your scissors to cut off any parts of the decoration besides the ring.Our star was metal with garland wrapped around it and metal is difficult to cut without strong scissors. I used gardening scissors. Be sure to remove all sharp edges after cutting since your child will be wearing this.

Step 3: Tie the ribbon curls to the star.

Step 4: Wear your crown.

Happy 4th of July!
