I made these back in January for the Terribly Important swap but I really like how the crown turned out and wanted to share. Cheesy

I used a template I found for making a child's birthday felt crown and made it more grown-up with loads of fabric, lace, fiber, and brass charm embellishments.  It turned out exactly as I envisioned it.  Cheesy

And of course every terribly important person needs a lovely scepter.




Thanks for looking!
