Last year my daughter woke up on the day of her seventh birthday party and asked me where her birthday crown was.
Birthday crown? Ooops.
I didn't know she was expecting a crown for her birthday. We've never had one before and she never mentioned it. Funny the ideas kids get in their heads. She took matters into her own hands though and created a lovely purple crown for herself out of construction paper.
For her birthday this year I made sure not to forget the crown. I decided I wanted to make a crown that was white and with a little searching on Pinterest I came across this post for lace crowns which I thought was perfect!
This lace crown turned out lovely.
I bought my lace at JoAnns along with some Aleene's Fabric Stiffener. I saturated the lace in the fabric stiffener, wrung out the excess, and laid my lace flat to dry on some wax paper overnight.
The birthday girl loved her crown!
She wore it all day. (And especially while enjoying her very own dish of apple crisp--the birthday girls request.)
