Fun fact: The St. Edward’s crown is decorated with over four hundred precious stones and weighs nearly five pounds! Although this origami crown won’t be as heavy or expensive, it’ll look just as good.

Materials Needed:

  • 4-5 pieces of 4x4in pieces of paper. (You can adjust the sizes if you wish)

Instructions:

Step 1: Fold in half to make a diamond shape. Open it. Fold the corners in as seen in the pictures.

Step 2: Take the bottom corner and fold up. Fold up again to the tip.

Step 3: Slight crease in the middle. This will give the crown its circular shape when put together.

Step 4: Slot the pieces in as seen in the pictures. (It’s okay to use tape if it’s too hard!)

Voila! Decorate with stickers or gems to give it that extra bling-look!
