Big Man Frog Prince Birthday Crown Tutorial


Rarely does my significant other have much of an opinion on what I do or do not do in my art projects. While I was working on little B’s frog prince birthday crown, he heard me mention “maribou” and he flat out put a stop to it. No feathers. I pleaded for pom-poms. There was a muttering about “emasculation” then another firm “no.”

So for the prince’s mighty crown, I’m embracing a ‘simple is best’ approach. This cute little, ahem, masculine crown was super simple to make. You’ll need:

  • 11X17 scrap paper, or two 8 1/2 x 11 papers taped together
  • stiff felt (big piece!)
  • glue
  • paperclips
  • decorative accents (ribbon, maribou, etc.)
  • cord elastic for chin

Take the scrap paper and form a circle on the wearer’s head and tape it together. Smash the circle flat, fold in thirds, then in half. Make one diagonal clip at the height you want your crown, and voila! You have a pattern for a 6 pointed hat to transfer to the felt.

Untape your circle, trace on the felt, and cut out. Put glue on the overlap and use paperclips to secure in place while it dries completely. After it’s dry, embellish away! I fastened the elastic to the crown by tying a knot in each end of the elastic and sewing it to the felt.
