Fourth of July Paper Crowns

Fourth of July paper crowns - Boston Moms

Is there anything cuter than a little kid in a paper crown? Follow these easy instructions to create your own patriotic paper crowns just in time for the Fourth of July!


Red, white, and blue construction paper; scissors; pipe cleaners; tape

Optional materials:

Stickers, white paper to decorate (instead of colored construction paper)


    1. Cut out a three-inch strip of paper and staple the ends together to make a crown (be careful to ensure the crown will fit around your child’s head).
    2. Cut out red, white, and blue stars.
    3. Tape the stars to the pipe cleaners.
    4. Tape the pipe cleaners to the inside of the crown. For a fun effect, tape your pipe cleaners at different heights so they look like fireworks!
