This papercut princess crown is the perfect birthday accessory along with our princess crown cupcake toppers. Of course it doesn’t need to be your little one’s birthday for them to wear a crown or enjoy some delicious treats!
Due to the intricate design of these party decorations, we recommend using your cutting machine with our SVG cut files.
We have quite a few DIY crowns on our site as it has always been a tradition for me and my daughter to wear paper crowns on our birthdays. So we love the idea of encouraging you to start this with your kids as well! Our princess crown has more of a royal look to it and can be made in any color of paper you prefer.
If you are making this for a celebration of some kind or for a playdate, you could have a little tea set out (for pretend play of course) and decorate the table with some paper blossom branches.

Download either the PDF or SVG files from below and print and/or cut out the princess crown pattern onto various sparkly paper. Attach the back using a hot glue to create your crown. Place on the top of your cupcakes or royal head for a crown fit for a princess.
If you are looking for a handmade crown that’s more of a keepsake or can be stored in a dress-up box, check out our felt crown. Another fun idea is to make your little one a felt stick unicorn. Or browse our kids’ parties page to get more ideas!

I noticed that the crown was used as a cake topper in your 2014 “Sparkly DIY Cake Toppers” post. Can you share a little bit about your finishing process for using the crown on a cake? Are the ends connected? And if so, would this design work well on sticks so that it sits slightly above the cake top instead of on it?
Hi Donna! Yes, the crown was closed/ends were connected. You could certainly glue on toothpicks so it sits above the cake!
