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!

Raid the cheap jewels at your local craft store and bling it up, baby. Isn’t that what crowns are for? I thought so.
