DIY: Sparkly Pipe Cleaner Crowns

Sparkly Pipe Cleaner Crowns

Sorry it’s been awhile since I last posted!  Been a busy year, what can I say.  But let’s continue where we left off, with sparkly pipe cleaner crowns that are great as birthday party activities or as an accessory for a Halloween costume.  Best of all, these are super easy, quick and low cost to make.


Here’s what you need:

  • Plastic headbands
  • Sparkly pipe cleaners
  • Adhesive glitter foam stickers
  • Scissors

I would recommend this DIY craft for kids ages 5-8.  The fine motor skills required to twist the pipe cleaners around the headbands are more advanced that you would think.  But kids of all ages will be happy to wear the creations!

Layer the pipe cleaners on top of each other and trim as necessary.

To add stickers, pinch the stickers together and sandwich the pipe cleaner ends.  Try adding hearts, stars or cut your own animal ears out!


Ella was in love with her birthday crown and the girls at her birthday party wore their crowns around the house with pride because they made their own unique headbands all by themselves.
