DIY Crown Hair Accessory Tutorial

DIY Crown Hair Accessory Tutorial

Hello fellow hen party lovers! My name is Laura, aka The Henthusiast, and this is my very first post on this here blog! If you’d like to learn a little more about me you can check out my about page.

To celebrate the launch I’m offering my blog readers 10% off all items at my etsy shop until the 23rd Ma, (which you can find here) with the code BLOGLAUNCHDISCOUNT. Just enter the code at the checkout.

I wanted to start off with a pretty universal DIY that can be used whatever the theme of your party, as a cute hair accessory for your hens. Although it would definitely be ideal for wannabe princesses, or those with a passion for all things gold and glittery!

If you need an extra helping hand I’ve also made a video tutorial which can see if you scroll down. Happy crafting!

The Stats

  • Time to make : 5-10 mins per crown
  • Supplies : Gold Duck Tape, Glitter Wrapping Paper, A Bobby Pin, Crown Template, Gluegun, Scissors, Craft Knife, Pen
  • Costs: Duck Tape – £4 from Hobbycraft, Glitter Wrapping Paper – £3 from Tiger, Bobby pins – £1 from the Pound Store
  • Total spend – £8 (I made 8, however only a small portion of the duck tape and wrapping paper was used, so you could make a lot more for the same price, or these supplies could be put towards other crafts! Hurrah!)

Things you will need

How To…

Stick the gold Duck tape to the back of the wrapping paper. Then print off the
crown template (here), cut it out an trace around it onto the duck tape.

Securing the crown with a glue gun


Glue all the way down the ‘half point’ on the glitter side of the paper, and press together until set.

You should now have something that looks like this;

To fix the bobby pin in place you need to slide the straight side of the pin through the two holes you just made. Then glue into place. This bit is a little fiddly, try and keep the pin separated so that the glue doesnt stick to both sides of it.

Once that is done it should look like this! If you found that tricky to follow I’ve made a video of the process so you can make it along with me.

If you want to personalise the crowns further you can always print off your hen party logo and stick them to the front. If you haven’t got a hen party logo yet you can find out how to get one here.

Here we all are wearing our lovely crowns. I’ll tell you what, they’re also very handy to spot the people you’re with if you end up in a busy club or bar like we did! Just follow the crowns!

If you do make yourself some crowns I’d love to see how they turn out, so feel free to hashtag #myhenthusiasm on social media so I can see them!

Thanks for reading! I’ll be back next week with another DIY!
