School plays, summer make-believe,
party hats; I LOVE IT ALL!! Here are some dollar store foam crowns I dressed up
with Plaid paints and Mod Podge!
I started with neon tags that also came
from the dollar store. You can sponge or brush on neon Apple Barrel paints to
add more color and texture. For a little sparkle, brush a coat of Sparkle Mod
Podge over the painted tags.
Glue the pieces together in layers with
Mod Podge. It's fun to cut new shapes or slits in the paper tags with scissors
Decorate the foam crowns with gems and
attach them with Mod Podge. You can leave the crown like this or....
Sponge paint it with gold FolkArt
I added the flower pieces, feather and
ribbon trim to the crowns with cool temp hot glue. These crowns are ready to
rule the back yard and maybe even the world!
