During the years I’ve created many crown and headband crafts for adults – and for kids! Here I would like to share my favourites with you!
Some are more unusual than others – yes I’m thinking of you pineapple fascinator! But all are simple and inexpensive to make – and above all fun to wear!
So let’s get going – on this top ten of fascinator, crown and headband crafts for adults – and start with number one, a personal favourite of mine..
1. Giant paper fascinator with feathers paper craft
A couple of years ago I wanted to wear a really big and bold fascinator for a party – however I couldn’t find one anywhere! So I made one – and the giant fascinator with feathers paper craft DIY was born!
This is how I did it..
It turned out really well – I had a fun evening – and I got lots of compliments on my very oversized headwear! I have shared my tutorial over on YouTube, so please head there with THIS LINK to see it..
I hope you have fun! If you make this project please tag it with #theawesomechildhoodproject on social media, so I can see it!

2. Easy laurel Boho style nature crown
This easy Nature Leaf Headband is one of my very favourite nature crowns! It’s really simple to make wth any large leaves – I used Laurel leaves – and Lavender to add a touch of colour and fragrance!
Over all I just love the chilled out Boho vibe of this project – and how simple it is to make!

5. Pretty Lilacs Diy crown
I made this simple tied Lilacs crown on a gorgeous May day in 2018 – the day of Prince Harrys Wedding! And a beautiful day when Lilacs were aplenty! Although it’s super simple – you can craft it in 10 minutes or so – I have to say it’s one of my very favourite flower crowns to date!

6. Wrapping paper Beret and Apron dress
This unusual recycled paper fashion project came about, when I had a lot of large pieces of used Christmas paper left over this January! I always wanted to challenge myself with a paper sewing DIY project, and this seemed the perfect occasion! I must say, it turned out great fun – and the dress is really fun to wear – just as long as you dont sit down! at all!!
Here is a quick video of this fun paper sewing project..
(If you can’t see the video please tap below)
However you will probably have to use it as an inspiration, rather than a fully fledged tutorial! Partly because it’s not very extensive – and partly because the nature of recycling wrapping paper is, that every pile is very different to the next!
I do hope you get inspired to create something awesome – and please send me a pic if you do! Or tag me on social media #theawesomechildhoodproject

8. Pineapple fascinator & tropical costume!
This project – although a little unusual to say the least – was absolutely great fun, and produced an awesome Tropical Pineapple Fascianator, which was so much fun to wear!

10. Straw decorations Christmas crown
This Autumnal Straw Tiara was inspired by some beautiful folklore style straw christmas decorations I found in my local charity shop! I wanted to create an Eco friendly and Sustainable Seasonal Crown, and they turned out perfect!
The Tiara is crafted by sewing the decorations together with cotton – working out the design as you go along! Very much a ‘winging it’ kind of project – like some of my very favourite projects often are – but it turned out really beautiful!
If you have a go at this, please do let me know, I’d be very interested to see what you create!
