How to Make

  1. Fold a coloured paper plate in half and cut a vertical line through the centre up to the dimpled edge.
  2. Unfold the paper plate and cut a line through the centre to make a cut cross shape.
  3. Cut a line to the dimpled edge in between each cross line so that you make 4 new cuts. You should be left with 8 triangles cut like a pizza.
  4. Decorate the crown with gems, jewels, sequins, stickers, pom poms or colouring pens and pencils. Anything you like!
  5. Place the plate on top of your head and gently pull it down onto your forehead, the points of the crown will then stand up.
