My crafty friend, Vicki, made these super cute DIY crown place cards for the pink princess birthday party she threw for her daughter’s 4th birthday. I asked Vicki for a quick description of how she made them because they’re not only adorable, but also really inexpensive and simple to make. Below are a list of supplies and simple how-to instructions.
Use these DIY crown place cards at place settings for a princess tea party (Vicki put princess chapsticks in each tiny crown and used them as place cards at the table), as labels for food on a buffet, or tie them on to party favors with a satin bow.
Here’s how to make these tiny princess place card crowns for your next princess party:
Empty cardboard paper towel rolls
Metallic acrylic paints (such as gold, silver and copper)
Sparkly nail polish
Black paint pen
- Using a pair of sharp scissors, cut the paper towel roll into 2-3″ rings (try to keep the rings the same size – use a pencil and ruler to mark where to evenly cut, if necessary). Cut evenly spaced triangles out of one side of each ring (about 7 total, depending on size) to make the crown shape.
- Use a mix of metallic acrylic paints and paint the inside and outside of the cardboard crowns, blending as you go. Set the crowns on newspaper or waxed paper to dry.
- Using a black paint pen, write names on one side of each crown.
- Add sparkle nail polish to the edges and in a few sparsely painted spots to add some glitz to the crowns.
