What you’ll need:

  • Fourth of July table decor or wreath-style decoration (can be purchased at the dollar store)
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors

What you do:

  • Curl the ribbon. You can use the holiday colors (I used red, white, blue, and silver) or fun color you’d like.
  • Use your scissors to cut off any parts of the decoration besides the ring.
  • Be sure to remove all sharp edges after cutting since your child will be wearing this.
  • Tie the ribbon curls to the star.
  • Wear your crown proudly!

What you do:
