Pipecleaner Crown

Princesses are a very big deal in our house, at the moment. Grace lives in her very own fairy tale where her daddy is the Prince and Riley is the witch {poor Riley}. Grace, of course, has cast herself as a princess.

So what does every princess need besides for a fairy Godmother or two...

A crown, of course.

Using these tinsel pipe cleaners from Hobby Lobby, Grace and I crafted our {her} own crown.

I started by twisting 2 of the pipe cleaners together, making a halo shape, for the base of the crown.

Then, by twisting and bending the pipe cleaners, the crown started to take shape. I used 8 pipe cleaners, cutting some of them to fill in and give structure to the sides and middle of the crown.

The finishing touch...jewels.

Grace happily glued some pink and blue 'sapphires' to her crown.

I think it's a crown truly fit for a princess.

The fairy tale continues. Do you think by default I get cast as the evil queen?


  1. That is so cute, Amy! Too bad we couldn't get our girls together right now. We are knee deep in princess and related figures right now. I think I just stepped on the same Merryweather fairy yesterday that you have in this post. :) Megan

  2. PS the only figure I'm allowed to play with is the Stepmother from Cinderella. I am wondering if there is any correlation there. :)

  3. That's an adorable crown... and quite creative! I want one for myself. :P Don't tell me you don't get cast as a fairy Godmother. lol

  4. Oh that's gorgeous! Indeed a crown fit for a princess!

    Evil queen? I doubt it! Maybe a lady in waiting.

  5. That is adorable. And maybe I'm in the minority here, but I'd love to be the evil queen. I'm nice to people all day long but if I'm the evil queen they'll have to do what I say... 'cause, you know, I'm evil. :)

  6. Grace is just so sweet:) You lucky mom you. If there's a good witch, how about a good queen:) Di

  7. Super cute! Such a sweet little princess. And no your not the evil queen!

  8. You are so creative! this is beautiful. Evil queens are normally beautiful too, and very interesting, so don't worry if it should happen :-)

  9. How cute! That would be a fun craft for a birthday party!

  10. Grace is a princess who truly deserves a crown and why not some awesome jewels! Looks great to me! (and you said you were in a rut!!)

  11. Darling. You two must have so much fun together :)

  12. she's just a cutie! you have a diy-er in the making right there Amy!


  13. Love pipe cleaners! This is an adorable project.

  14. This is TOO CUTE! You're back on your creative streak again! No way are you the evil queen.

  15. Riley always has to be the bad guy. But better to have the canine cast in that roll than the mom.


  16. What a cute and easy idea! Pinned :)
