Paper Plate Flower Crown

by Lynn Lilly, May 31 2021

Turn construction paper and a paper plate into a perfect pretend play crown! This crown can turn you into a king or queen or even a fairy or gnome! Here is what you need to make this project:

Project Difficulty: Intermediate


  • Washable Markers
  • Washable Liquid Glue
  • Scissor
  • Construction Paper (your favorite colors + green)

Additional Materials:

  • Yarn or String
  • Paper Plate
  • Hole Punch



  1. Take a piece of construction paper and start to draw a circle (it does not have to be perfect). When you get close to the completing the circle stop. 
  2. Take the scissor and start to cut out the circle. When you get to the open end of the circle cut inward and continue to cut around the circle. You will do this same motion every time you make it around the circle. You are cutting a spiral. 
  3. When you get to the end leave a small tab. 
  4. Go back to where you started the circle and cut the end so it is no longer attached to the paper. 
  5. Starting with the end you just cut in step 4 roll the flower until it is completely rolled. 
  6. Once you reach the center tab add washable liquid glue to the tab and glue the rolled flower onto the tab. Hold it in place until the glue is tacky enough to hold the flower in place. 
  7. Make 9 more flowers. You can do them in different colors. Don't work about making the same size circles. They can all be slightly different sizes. 
  8. Use the green marker to draw leaves on a green sheet of construction paper. Cut out the leaves. 
  9. Using the green marker draw veins on the leaves.  
  10. Fold some of the leaves in half to give them dimension. 
  11. Next, take the paper plate. If your paper plate has a circle already in the center like the one I am using cut into the size of plate and cut along the circle. Remove the circle and trim the boarder of the plate to about 1" width. 
  • If your place does not have a circle draw a circle in the center leaving about a 1" boarder.  
  1. Place the plate on your head and if it is too big trim the ends. 
  2. Use the hole punch to punch a hole at the end of each plate. 
  3. Cut two pieces of yarn approximately 1-1/2 feet long. Each piece of yearn needs to be long enough to tie together when you put the flower crown on your head. 
  4. Tie each piece of string to the plate through the hole you punched at each end. 
  5. Glue the leaves around the plate. 
  6. Glue the flowers over the leaves around the plate. 
  7. Let the glue completely dry before you put on your flower crown and start playing.

    Once you are ready to put on your crown, place it on your head and use the string to tie a bow in the back!
