Add Sparkle

Use hot glue to attach a rhinestone bauble to the center of the liner flower. Add a row of self-stick rhinestones to the bottom of the crown for extra sparkle.

Add Ribbon

Using a standard hole punch, punch each side of the crown about 1/2" in to accommodate the ribbon. Insert ribbon through holes, then knot to secure. Cut loose ends of ribbon, leaving the ends long enough so the crowns will be able to comfortably tie around kids' heads.
