DIY Crown Headband – Free Template

My baby turns ONE next week! This year has felt loooong but watching her develop into her own little person has felt like it’s gone by so incredibly fast! I have been working on a few DIY things for her birthday and this is one of them! Side note: I’ve become more and more obsessed with my hot glue gun, it’s such a great way to avoid sewing. (Who’s got time for that?) Anyways, I hope you enjoy this easy no-sew headband tutorial.

I created this quick printable crown template, you can download it here.

  1. Print out the crown template
  2. Cut out the template along the lines.
  3. Trace the template onto your material of choice and cut out.
  4. Decide how small you’d like your crown to be and adjust accordingly.
  5. Glue the two ends together using a hot glue gun to form a crown shape.
  6. Fold crown in half and create a tiny cut on each side towards the bottom of the crown.
  7. Take your headband and cut it once to create two ends.
  8. String the headband through the holes you created in the crown and tie the ends together.
