Make your own crown - fit for a queen!

Bring the Jubilee festivities to your Big Jubilee Lunch by inviting everyone to come in costume or royal fancy dress. Stuck for ideas? Download our handy crown template and decorate to your liking.

You will need

  • Two A4 sheets of thick paper or card
  • Felt tip pens or coloured pencils
  • Tinfoil
  • Embellishments to add some sparkle, like old or broken jewellery or pressed flowers
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Sticky tape or a stapler

 

Top tip: 

Rummage through your recycling for materials – use a cereal box to make your headband or swap tinfoil for shiny wrappers!

 

Instructions

Download and print this crown template onto one of the sheets of card. If you don’t have a printer, draw it out instead.
Use pens or pencils to decorate the crown!

Whatever takes your fancy, your royal highness.

Cover in tin foil or sparkly materials to make it look fancy!
Use the second sheet of card to create your headband. Cut three horizonal strips (about 5cm wide) and tape or staple together to form one long strip.
Carefully cut out your decorated crown, add glue and stick in the centre of your headband.
Wrap the band around your head and tape or staple to the correct size.
Ta da! There you have it – your very own coronation crown, perfect for pictures at your Big Jubilee Lunch.
