Rapunzel's Crown Craft

Rapunzel's Crown Craft

On October 2, the super-tressed star of Tangled officially joined the Disney Princess pantheon, bringing the royal court's population to an even ten. For her coronation at London's Kensington Palace, we present a paper copy of her tiara - stolen by Flynn Rider in the film - to wear in tribute.

What you'll need

  • template
  • white, silver, or gray paper
  • tacky glue
  • plastic gems
  • glue dots

How to make it

  1. To make a crown, first download the free template. Using the template, cut the shapes from white and silver or gray paper.
  2. Use tacky glue to adhere the crown and ornament pieces to their bases, then glue the ornament shapes to the crown.
  3. To embellish the tiara, attach plastic gems with glue dots. Add a band to the crown by gluing a 1 1/4-inch-wide strip of white paper atop a 1 1/2-inch-wide strip of silver or gray paper.
  4. Use glue dots to attach the ends of the headband to the sides of the decorated crown, adjusting the length to fit the wearer's head.
