Sophie demonstrates how to make a Queen (or King) of Hearts crown for your Valentine. Best of all, these crowns are made from doilies and Dollar Store materials, leaving you plenty of money to purchase chocolates and flowers.
Fold your three doilies in half
Center one doily in the middle of your strip of posterboard. Place the posterboard with its top edge on the fold of the doily.
Place a line of glue on the strip.
Fold the doily onto itself and glue it down. Do this with the other two doilies. Overlap them slightly and place them on either side of the center doily. Glue to secure.
The heart shape doily will need some support to stand up. We use a stirstick for this. Measure your stir stick on the back of the heart shaped doily. Cut off any extra.
Glue the trimmed stir stick to the back of the heart shaped doily.
Glue the heart shaped doily to the center of your crown.
I use a paper clip to size the crown to fit. Bring both ends together and paper clip them at the correct size. Trim any excess. Your crown awaits its royal subject.
