Though I’ve made a couple of papercraft tiaras in the past, I thought it would be fun to re-imagine the idea for spooky season. The spiderweb crown was the first that came to mind. I just knew that a web pattern would translate well into a crown!
For the second crown, I decided to go with a snake as the central motif. Admittedly, I was a little torn about this idea. Only because I had pitched a different snake-themed project idea to my patrons last month, and had a few people let me know that they are not fond of the slithery creatures, and that they are very much not interested in snake-themed projects.
So, I hope you snake-averse people can excuse me this once, because I just had to bring this serpent crown to life for Halloween!
I use Adobe Illustrator for all my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other Halloween freebies available on my blog!
If you’d like to use these crowns as part of a costume, I’d recommend cutting the designs from a sturdier material than paper—like plastic sheets, or a piece of stiff fabric. But, if you just plan to use them as decoration, then cardstock works great.
Enjoy making these Halloween crowns! And, as always, be sure to share your frightful results with me on Instagram.
