How do you like to ring in the new year? Whether you’re going out or staying home, it’s always fun to dress up a little! This paper celestial crown is a quick and easy craft project, especially if you have a cutting machine. Plus there’s no date on it so you can keep it and wear it again next year.

If you don’t have access to a cutting machine, you can also cut this crown by hand using our PDF template.

Here’s to a bright New Year

Hand illustrated by Emily, this paper celestial crown features intricate details glued onto the back side and 3D paper stars on the front. Altogether there are three layers, and we used a different shade of gold for each one. Our frosted gold paper pack includes our ten favorite golds to craft with for the holidays, but of course you can always use whatever colors you like for your crown.

Once you’ve made your paper celestial crown, we’d love to see how you wear it! Whether it’s with a fancy dress or your coziest pajamas, we’re sure you’re going to look fabulous. Feel free to share photos on our Facebook page for members or by tagging #MadeWithLia on Instagram.

Skill level: Beginner

Crafting tip: Make sure to glue your paper crown to the headband at an angle to get a dramatic look. If you glue it flat to the headband, it won’t sit correctly.
