Liberty Crown

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Pay tribute to one of America's greatest symbols of freedom by donning a craft foam crown inspired by Lady Liberty's - which features seven rays, one for each continent.


  • Green craft foam
  • Scissors
  • Stapler
  • Cloth tape
  • Paper clip


  1. From green craft foam, cut out a curved headband, two end straps, and seven rays, as shown.
  2. Staple the end straps to the ends of the headband.
  3. Cut seven 1-inch-wide slits, evenly spaced, in the headband.
  4. Fit the pointed ends of the rays through the slits, folding the straight ends up against the inner headband and using cloth tape to secure them.
  5. Finally, overlap the end straps and paper-clip them together.
