Super Simple Crown

Bryan and I teach the 5 year old primary class at church.  A week or two ago, the lesson called for a crown. Yours truly whipped one up on the spot.  

If you'd like to do the same, you'll need:

  • A rectangle of cardstock
  • Scissors
  • A stapler

Are you ready?

Then, you know, adorn the local royalty.

As it turned out, only one kid came to our class that day.  And exactly zero kids wanted to wear the crown.  But Olivia liked it later.  

And, anyway, I feel like crown-making is a good skill to have in your back pocket.

You know, in case you need to be king of the world or something.  :)

Knowing how to make a crown is a real necessity :)

Do you want to hear a really sad story? I made crowns just like this for my kids for the first lesson I was ever going to teach them (my primary kids by the way). Anyways so turns out I wasn't going to start teaching them until the next week because they hadn't released the other teacher yet. So I put all those lovely crowns up in my craft room. Where they stayed for many months. And then one day we happened to have our caseworker coming to our house and so I cleaned up the craft room. And I threw out the crowns. And then a few weeks later what did the primary lesson call for? That's right. Crowns.

So moral of the story. Don't throw that crown away. :)

And it looks very nice. You did a lovely job. Your crowns are much more even than mine were. No wonder I threw them out!
