"Queen of Hearts Crown DIY (do it yourself) "


QUEEN OF HEARTS (Helena Bonham Carter) 

After Alice in Wonderland won the Oscar for Costume design yesterday, everyone would like to dress like the movie characters. Therefore we will show you how to make the crown of the Queen of hearts   for the upcoming last weekend of the carnival celebrations in Greece. 

You will need a can, a paper tape and golden coloured paper(any kind).



THE PROCESS:

First of all you cut the can both sides. Then put a slice of paper tape on the bottom side so not to cut yourself  when you will wear it and open two little holes opposite to each other so to be easier to adjust on your head!
The perimeter of a usual can is around 21cm and you diverse it with the number of the "tops" you want for the crown. The crown of this project has 7 "tops", so each crown top is 3 cm(length). In the pictures below you can see how we separated the paper tape on the can, drawing also the lines to help us with the "tops". Between the lines you have to draw triangles with the top in the middle (1.5cm). Afterwards you cut the edges like the design in picture (3).

Then you put on the outside and also on the inside of the crown the golden paper. You can also paint it if you like with a golden spray or a paint marker.

After that draw and cut from the paper tape small hearts depending on how many tops your crown has.
Pin or glue them on the centre of each triangle. You have to colour them red or you can decorate them with red glitter.

The results are amazing as you can see below!!!




Hope you will enjoy the craft from the first to the last minute!!! 

Stay tuned and wait for more crafts.. 
Lots of love
