One of the inter­est­ing side effects of a boom­ing Pin­ter­est account is the chance to learn a lit­tle more about your style. It appears that I have some sort of sub­con­scious Queen/Princess com­plex. Because I love me some crowns. But no, not the Miss Amer­ica tiaras. I’m talkin’ DIY crowns.

Unfor­tu­nately I’m not likely to start wear­ing a crown any­time soon. It just doesn’t fit the aver­age WAHM lifestyle, does it? So, I’m chan­nel­ing my DIY crown fas­ci­na­tion by focus­ing on my kid. We all do this at some point, right? Join me won’t you, in a smor­gas­bord of great DIY crown ideas!
