Here is one way to make a homemade paper crown. I originally got this idea from this site: http://www.origami-instructions.com/easy-origami-modular-crown.html. I thought that this should be on instructables so here it is. An easy, fun, project to do with your kids or class or just for fun. So let's get started.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials:
You will need:
- Construction paper (I used yellow but you can use any color)
- Scissors or other cutting device (exacto knife, straight cutter, etc.)
- Stapler and staples
Step 2: Squares:
First, make 3" by 3" squares of paper (about 10 squares are needed per crown). One 9" by 12" piece of construction paper should yield about 12 squares.
Step 3: Fold in Half:
I started by folding each square in half to find the center point.
Step 4: Fold Each Corner In:
Fold each upper corner inwards so that the edge matches the center line.
Step 5: Fold the Bottom Edge Up:
Fold the bottom edge upwards to match the bottom line of the triangle.
Step 6: Fold Again:
Fold the bottom edge upwards again.
Step 7: Repeat:
Repeat step 6 9-12 more times.
Step 8: Staple:
Flip each piece over and staple them together to make a chain. Staple ends together to make the crown. Use as many pieces as needed to fit the person's head. Enjoy your new symbol of royalty! :)
