This week marked the 9th birthday of my oldest daughter’s life! It’s crazy to think just 9 years ago today I became a mama…wow time goes by too fast!
I have three daughters and my oldest fits every stereotype there is when it comes to firstborns. She is a natural leader. She mothers all the other kids…even me sometimes! One thing too about her that is very different from my other girls is just how much of a girly-girl she is!
She asked me one day, “What would it take for me to become a real-life princess?” I chuckled but then she said, “Mommy I am very serious…”
She is quirky, creative and with every ounce of her being in-love with the ever-so-famous Elsa!
I discovered an amazing thing one day while browsing around on Pinterest. I had made crowns for the girls in the past, but this pin was hands down the coolest I’ve seen yet!
The crown was much larger with taller peaks and THEN there was the added bonus of HAIR!!! I couldn’t resist! I showed my husband the pin and he immediately agreed I had to make it for her birthday.
I picked up some larger “jewels from the craft store to bling out the crown! I love how the added jewels just push the crown over the top!
The pattern designer suggests placing the crown on a head while you are braiding the hair…I COMPLETELY AGREE!!! I wasn’t able to do this because the crown was a surprise however I do plan to use my girls in the future for wearing the crown while I fix the hair. It was quite the challenge getting the hair to look right while laying on the floor.
I think the crown is the perfect height for adding the hair. If the hair was any shorter the added hair would make it look off.
She’s been wearing it all day and the braid has held up really well and the level of “tightness” on the crown is good so as to keep the crown from slipping down.
If you don’t know how to crochet this crown is available for purchase in my Etsy shop.
Making one yourself? Share it down below! I’d love to see how you make this crown unique and how you decorate it!!!
