DIY halk dust birthday crown

Our little girl will be one year old in less than a month. How cliche, but it happened so fast. So I'm already busy with the preparations. Get ideas, order cake and craft. I made a birthday crown out of chalk dust.

As one you can reuse by always writing something different on it with a chalk or chalk marker.

A birthday without a crown or hat is of course not really a birthday. So I got to work for the little girl. I wanted to make a chalk dust birthday crown so I can reuse it. I had already seen the chalk dust in Sandra's super cool store, Rumah Conceptstore.

A bike ride to the village and a visit to the sewing shop further I had everything for this fun DIY.

What do you need?

  • chalk dust
  • Bias tape
  • Yarn
  • Sewing machine
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Measuring tape

How do you proceed?

First, measure the circumference of your child's head. This way you can see how big you need to make the crown. I made the crown myself 40cm wide and the bias tape 70cm.

This way the crown does not go all the way around the head, but you do have enough ribbon to tie the birthday crown.

1.Cut two rectangles from the chalk dust measuring 40cm by 13cm.
2.Divide the rectangles into 5 points. You can of course choose to make more or fewer points, but I thought it was nice that you could make one point in the middle and two on either side.
3. Now place both parts wrong sides together. I glued the parts with a little washi tape. In principle you can also pin it together, but I thought that was a shame because you still see a few holes in the fabric.

Then sew both parts together with a zigzag stitch along the edges.

4. Determine the center of your bias tape and of your crown. Then tape your bias tape with a bit of washi tape so that it doesn't shift under the sewing machine.
5. Now sew your bias tape on both sides of the crown. Also topstitch the ends so that you get a nice narrow ribbon to tie the birthday crown with.

Wait a few more weeks and then it's really party. Madam may then put on her birthday crown of chalk dust and blow out her first candle. I am so curious how she will find that.

You also always make a party hat or crown for your child's birthday (ren)?
