Thank you to The Cartoon Network and My Knight and Me for inspiring this sponsored post about making a princess crown headband for your little girl.
If you have a daughter she may be in to playing dress-up. We’ve got all kind of costumes; like a doctor’s coat, superhero capes, a construction worker vest with a hard hat, and of course, several princess gowns.
Of all of them, my daughter favorites the gowns. We have a few tiaras, but her brothers always manage to break them or they get lost.
Since I don’t like to re-buy items my kids are rough with, I got an idea to make a crown with my 6-year-old daughter.
We got our inspiration from a fun new animated series we watched while she was on school break last week.
The adventure-packed series called My Knight and Me, airs weekdays at 12 p.m. (ET/PT) on Cartoon Network.
About the show:
The show, geared towards kids ages 6-10, follows the quests of a charismatic trio of knights in shining armor: loyal, street-smart Jimmy the Squire; daring and determined Cat the Princess; and bold and courageous Henri of Orange, Jimmy’s dad and a charmingly inept, yet passionately chivalrous knight who might not be the most efficient protector of the realm – but sure is the funniest!
Together, the knightly group sets out from the Kingdom of Epic to save the day and brighten the Dark Ages!
Things we love about the show:
- The series models close family ties (Jimmy thinks his dad is the best!)
- It emphasizes the importance of teamwork
- And underscores the importance of using strategy over might to solve problems (Jimmy is the man with a plan!)
In My Knight and Me, Cat the Princess wears a unique headband crown with ribbons that my daughter just loves. While the one we made isn’t identical to Cat’s crown, it was still fun to make and inspired from the show.
How to make a simple Princess Headband Crown for Little Girls
Decorative garland (we found ours at Michael’s in the gift wrap aisle)
Several spools of ribbon in the color of your choice (ours were an 1/8 inch x 10 yd)
First determine how much decorative garland you need so that it fits your little girl’s head perfectly. I wrapped and twisted mine twice so that it’d stay together.
Take the ends of the garland and wrap it around the crown so it stays together.
Once you’ve made the crown, cut the ribbons to your desired length and tie them on to the crown. (My daughter wanted her ribbons long and we tied them just in the back of the crown for a waterfall effect.)
And that’s it, if this breaks, no biggie, I’ve got plenty of ribbon leftover to make another and this took no time to make!
Next time you and your child share some TV time, take a break and check out My Knight and Me, it’s sure to get giggle out of them.
