I love the idea of taking simple metallic party crowns and livening them up a bit with playful shapes and colorful pom poms. These crowns would be great for a bridal shower, birthday or bachelorette party. You could also make a smaller, mini version for a first birthday party. Read on for the full instructions and more pretty photos by my newest crafting collaborator, Mara Dawn.

To make the gold shapes crown; cut a thin band of gold card stock out for the headband. Cut gold triangles out and glue the triangles to headband. Cut smaller triangles out of colorful paper to decorate the crown. Using a glue gun, glue pom poms to tops of gold triangles. Finally, glue the ends of the headband together to form a circle.
