DIY Handmade Queen's Crown

Hello everyone.. 

Schools are the places where children learn many things.. Apart from academics, it is good to see other talents and skills of our children which they display at their school. So, for one such occasion,my kid needed a queen's crown for her skit..

So,I thought, why not make a crown myself? It would be a fun craft..Isn't it? My daughter loved the idea was very happy to help  me..

 I have started making this crown using an old hairband and a paper plate..


Note:
The paper plate in the above picture is a complete plate which is folded into half.Please don't cut along the center of the plate..

Fold the paper again into its quarter size and draw the crown picture on top of it..

Now cut along the design..



Now, when you open it, the main layout for our crown is ready..





Fold the crown shape along the hairband by inserting the hairband though its center..

Now decorating this crown is up to us... I have used the back side of the crown as the center part like this..

 
and the back side looks like this..



Now, we can cover this entire crown with golden paint and decorate it with beads,stones,crystals and anything which we think will make this crown look royal..

After some enhancements and embellishments.  Voila...

 


 The side of my crown looks like this..



This is just my version..Why don't you try your version of this crown and comment below...

Thank you so much for visiting my blog.. Hope you liked my crown..

Have a nice day..Keep on crafting..

The flowers are made of petals in which the stocking cloth is strectched on a ring made with thin golden wire.. This flower basket is decorated with satin ribbons and cloth lace.....



Hope you liked my flower basket..

Tulips are one of the most beautiful flowers in the world... Be its bright and dashing colors or its unique shape or the perfect contrast of its petals to its long thin stem and long leaves..Tulips are always a feast for our eyes..

With that thought, while I was going through an old school book of my daughter, I saw a picture with these beautiful tulip flowers... And I attempted to draw it with oil pastels and it turned out like this..

Garland using satin ribbon

Hello everyone..

Making crafts gives us a wonderful feeling.. But if we do something for deities or for pooja purposes. it will really give us great satisfaction. So, today, I have made a small garland with yellow,green and red colored satin ribbons...

This craft is a classic one but looks really colorful.. This garland is made by sewing the satin ribbon along a single side.. I have added some beads and a centerpiece for decoration..


You can see another type of garland made using oasis flower by clicking my oasis flower bed garland post.

Hope you liked my garland.. Thank you forvisiting my blog..

Have a nice day.. Keep on crafting..

Art with Oil pastels-landscape

Hello everyone..

I love painting... If you are a regular visitor of my blog or you are familiar with my blog posts, you might know that some how or other, flowers and colors will feature in almost every post... But today, I have tried a landscape by using oil pastels...

 I have drawn a line of trees in fall season(without leaves) on a grassland.. I have drawn a stone laid pathway inbetween.. The background colors orange,ochre and lemon yellow are blended...

As drawing landscape is new to me, I hope you will overlook my flaws ... I am happy with my first attempt but I know I have a long way to go and I will keep on practicing..

Feel free to comment..

Have a nice day... Keep on painting...
