DIY Toilet Paper Roll Glitter Crown with Tulle


Blog DIY Toilet Paper Glitter Crown with Tulle-1Maya is obsessed with “princesses”.  Every dress is a “princess dress”, and her obsession with Elsa and Anna is (like most toddler girls) a bit out of control 🙂  I had brief thoughts of making her an Elsa costume, but then reality slapped me in the face.  Esther, on the other hand, IS making Ava one, and I cannot wait to see it!!  I went the easy route with Maya’s costume and found a cute orange and black tutu looking outfit at Goodwill for $4.  It’s supposed to be a witch, but I called it a Pumpkin Princess outfit, and Maya’s in love haha.

But…every princess needs a crown, no?  The DIY lace crown I made before was super easy, but I wanted to try something a little more complex and fun.  I had the idea of using a toilet paper roll for the crown, putting glitter on it, and somehow having tulle shoot out.  Honestly, I wasn’t sure how I was going to do it until I started making it ha!

As luck would have it, Mother had a post that very morning on Toilet Paper Roll Crafts.  I had originally just cut my crown straight across, but their gold crown with the points was so much cuter!  Saved just in the nick of time!

What you’ll NeedBlog DIY Toilet Paper Glitter Crown with Tulle-2 Blog DIY Toilet Paper Glitter Crown with Tulle-3

  • Toilet paper roll
  • Sharp scissors
  • Glitter
  • Marker that is either the same shade or complimentary to your glitter
  • Glue
  • Small Hole Punch
  • Elastic
  • Tulle (a yard should be plenty, although if you want a longer train use more)
  • Large Cookie sheet lined with tin foil for easy clean up
  • Toddler (added bonus :))

Instructions

  • Cut your toilet paper roll in half
  • Cut jagged design in one half
  • Cut the other half into a fourth and then cut up one side so it slides inside itself to be smaller and will fit inside the jagged crown piece.
  • Color the Crown piece with your marker.  That way when the glue dries, you will see that color vs the brown toilet paper roll.Blog DIY Toilet Paper Glitter Crown with Tulle-4
  • Punch holes in opposite sides at the bottom of the crown.
  • Lightly coat the crown with glue (I put a little too much on and it started dripping :{Blog DIY Toilet Paper Glitter Crown with Tulle-5 Blog DIY Toilet Paper Glitter Crown with Tulle-6
  • Have your toddler help with lightly pouring the glitter on.  I used both black tiny ball glitter and gold dust glitter.
  • Set that aside to dry.  If you lightly coat it with glue, it should be fine standing up right.
  • Next, cut your tulle into 6 inch squares.  I had probably 8-10. Stack all the tulle with the corners at varying vs being all lined up.  I think it would look cool if you did longer pieces and they were flowing down the back too!
  • Place your cut 1/4 piece of the roll in the middle of the tulle stack and fold up, securing with a rubber band.  Secure the excess with more rubber bands so it’s easier to feed through the crown.Blog DIY Toilet Paper Glitter Crown with Tulle-7
  • When your crown is dry, feed the tulled inner crown up through the middle and place some glue around the bottom to secure.Blog DIY Toilet Paper Glitter Crown with Tulle-8 Blog DIY Toilet Paper Glitter Crown with Tulle-9
  • Cut the rubber bands and fluff the tulle.Blog DIY Toilet Paper Glitter Crown with Tulle-10
  • Tie the elastic through the punched holes, and your done!Blog DIY Toilet Paper Glitter Crown with Tulle-11Have fun!!
