Thank you to Amazon Studios and Niko and the Sword of Light for inspiring this sponsored post about making a princess hat headband with your child.
I’ve talked about my daughter’s love of dress-up clothes before. There is no shortage in my house. In fact, she’s in two plays this week at theatre camp and we had to make one of the costumes. So, that’s another item to add to our dress-up box!
Another crown has joined the mix, too. Actually, it’s more like a hat. But, it serves the purpose of a crown. I think. Are you still following? 🤣
The craft project came about after my family and I previewed a new children’s show on Amazon Kids called Niko and the Sword of Light. The show is based on the motion graphic comic by Imaginism Studios.
Niko and the Sword of Light follows 10-year-old Niko, the last of his kind in a strange, fantastical world, as he embarks on an epic quest to defeat the darkness and bring the light back to his land. Armed with his magic sword, brave Niko journeys to the Cursed Volcano, making new friends and powerful foes along the way, all while uncovering secrets about his mysterious past.
My daughter loved the headpiece one of the main characters, Princess Lyra wears, but I didn’t have anything similar in my craft box. So, we whipped up something else princess-y instead.
She was pleased and so am I. So, princess hat it is!
Niko and the Sword of Light, an Amazon Original Kids series, debuts on Prime Video, Friday, July 21!
My inspiration to make a princess hat headband came from these adorable DIY Party Hats found at StudioDIY.com.
Check out how easy it is to make!
- Paper Mache Cone
- Mod Podge
- Hot glue
- Paint brush
- Thin headband
- Using your paint brush, paint a layer of Mod Podge all around your paper mache cone. Tip: Keep your hand inside the cone while you do this, it makes it easier. Let the glitter and glue dry.
- Next, apply a layer of Mod Podge over the glitter. This will help keep the glitter in tact, that way it’s not all over your house! Let that dry, too, before doing anything else.
- Next, cut your ribbons to your desired length. Mine are 24 inches long.
- After that, cut a small hole at the top of your cone. Feed your ribbons through the hole, tie a big knot on the ribbons inside the cone so it stops the ribbons from falling through the hole.
- Hot glue your hat on to your headband. Let cool and harden before trying on.
So, next time you and your child share some TV time, take a break and check out Niko and the Sword of Light, it’s sure to peak their interest.
