Princess Birthday Craft Ideas
Here are some fun princess crafts that can be completed by your guests and some that you can prepare for princess party favors. All these craft ideas are all fairly cheap and easy to make.
Party Princess Hat
There are so many different ways to make princess party hats, from crowns to the cone shape variety. This one is fairly simple and can be decorated by your guests or just left plain.
You will need:
- Foam or Paper
Princess Hat Instructions:
- Cut your ribbon into 1 foot pieces.
- Print out a template for your hats or make your own.
- Cut out your first hat and attach your ribbon to the inside of the top of your princess hat.
- Roll your hat into a cone shape and tape the inside into place.
- Add small holes in each side and add the elastic strap.
Princess wands are fairly simple and cheap to make. Your party guests will love to twirl them around. This is a simple project you can have completed before the Birthday party and hand out as party favors.
You will need:
- Sticks (around 20 cents each)
- A few rolls of Ribbon (around $1 each)
- A bag of eye hooks (around $1.50)
- Paint (optional)
- Paint your sticks if desired. They look great both painted or not. If you want to add a gloss finish to them, spray them with polyurethane after your paint is dry.
- Screw your eye hooks into the top of your sticks. This can usually be done without any tools.
- Cut your ribbon into 4 to 5 foot pieces. Use a minimum of 3 ribbons for each princess wand, the more ribbon used the better the wands will turn out. Then string them through the eye hook, so you have a couple feet on each side and tie them off.
Princess Picture Frame
Princess picture frames are a great craft idea for a kid’s Birthday party. They are easy and cheap to make and make great refrigerator magnets. You can also send them out with your thank you cards with a picture of them at the Birthday party. All you will need is foam, an exacto knife, magnets, glue and decorations. The kids can decorate them with princess stickers, foam cut outs, fake jewels, markers, etc. Cut out the frames by using an exacto knife and straight edge, then glue on the backs and magnets before the party. The kids won’t take up too much time for decorating; they are usually done within 5 minutes.
Princess Jewelry Box and Necklace Craft
I found these mini jewelry boxes for a $1 a piece at Micheals. I bought paint markers and wood cut outs for the girls to decorate them with. My older daughter was on hand to help out and touch up anything the girls wanted them too. If you have time spray them with polyurethane, this will give them a glossy look and protect the paint job.
Along with the jewelry boxes the girls made a simple beaded princess necklace. The necklace only took most of them about five minutes.
