It’s a craft. It’s a fashion accessory. It’s fun! And you can make this 4th of July Paper Plate Crown quickly and easily with things you probably have in your house already. Oh and it makes the cutest pictures!
4th of July Paper Plate Crown
- White paper plate
- Blue paint (I always use Crayola washable)
- Red construction paper
- Elastic cord* or ribbon
- Hole punch
Cut the paper plate in half, and then cut a semi-circle from the middle following the shape of the plate.
*A note about the elastic cord. I had just bought my daughters’ sandals at Target, and I realized the elastic cord that held the shoes together was perfect for the 4th of July Crown. Oh yes, I upcycled that trash into a treasure. If you don’t have elastic cord, ribbon would work as well. You could just tie a bow under the chin, but elastic is perfect.
Tie the elastic cord (or ribbon) to the paper plate.
