Mateo wanted crowns for his birthday. Inspired by chess, he wants to be a king (not a prince). And he wanted all of us to wear crowns as well.
I made the crown template on my own, and got the gem illustrations from Vecteezy.com. I tried to keep them simple so they would be easy to cut. Since these are for adults, I made an extra strip to make it bigger. Children would just need a single strip and the crown detail to fit around their head.
Mateo chose his crown among the templates from First Palette, which required a lot of patience to cut. I initially planned to make this a craft activity for Mateo — print the crown without colors and print the gems separately so he could color and glue them to the crown. That’s why I recreated their chosen template. But then I changed my mind and forgot that First Palette already have a full color version of the crown.
I still included a black and white outline version in the printable template so you’ll have an option to make this a coloring craft activity.
- card stock (letter size 120 gsm paper is good enough) or a photo paper to make it prettier
- glue or double-sided tape
- paper clip (optional, for easy crown size adjustment)
- Print the template.
- Cut along the lines. Children would need just one strip to go around the crown piece, but adults may need two.
- Glue the cut pieces together.
- You can fix the crown size with a glue, or use paper clips to secure it instead so they’d be easy to adjust.
- Have fun playing pretend royalty.
