I will be cosplaying Princess Peach soon and started by making the crown first! Here is an easy tutorial on how to make your own Princess Peach crown:
Due to the popularity of this post, I decided to create a template you can print out to help make the crown! All you have to do is click HERE to view the full size image and click FILE>PRINT. Be sure to select LANDSCAPE.
I made the template in color just in case you didn't want to use sheet foam. Just cut it out and glue the ends together! The paper crown would be great for little kids!
Gold glitter sheet foam, red & blue gems, scissors, pencil, tacky glue, hot glue gun, and a skinny headband
*I purchased all these supplies at Hobby Lobby*
I made a pattern first to make sure it would look good on my head. This is actually still too tall here.. I later trimmed it some more. Please see my template to print your own. But it's always better to make it too big than too small then you can go back and fix it!
So I traced my pattern onto the back of my sheet foam and added an extra lip to the edge where I knew I would eventually connect the two ends together.
I cut out two so I could tacky glue them together. This way the inside of the crown is pretty like the outside.
Next I hot glued the gems on and then attached the ends together using the small extra tab.
Then I hot glued it to a skinny headband. You could also glue hair clips instead but I think a headband is more secure.
I also made her brooch by taking an oval shaped gem and glueing it to some sheet foam. Then attached a brooch pin to the back.
Excuse my silly face, this was late at night! But here I am wearing my new crown and brooch! I have since purchased a pattern and fabric so I can make Princess Peach's big dress so check back for progress on that :)
Anyone going to make a crown?
Send me pics if you do!
