It’s crazy to think that just last year we were celebrating The Queen’s Jubilee. When very soon we’ll be celebrating The King’s Coronation. To mark the occasion, we thought we’d bring you this fun King’s Coronation Craft Idea to make at home. Seeing a monarch crowned such a huge (possibly for many, once in a lifetime) event.
So getting the little ones involved in the run-up to the Coronation is a sure fire way to get them excited — and make some memories too.
We asked our friend Maggy at Red Ted Art for a King’s Coronation Craft Idea and she came up trumps with this brilliant DIY paper crown tutorial.
Perfect for budding kings and queens to wear on the big day. And a sure-fire way to get everyone in the party spirit.

Plus the smooth, glide-on paint works without the need for water or brushes.
This means less mess all round, which adds to a very happy experience for all!
Once you’ve finished colouring your DIY paper crown. You could use cotton wool to stick around the base — to look like ermine.
