New Year’s Eve Kids’ Crown Craft

rainbow glitter

Celebrate New Year’s Eve with a festive kids’ craft! Your child may not make it until midnight, but she can get festive earlier on in the evening with a sparkling glitter crown. New Year’s is a holiday that’s all about excitement. There are fireworks, party poppers and confetti everywhere. Help your little one get into the celebratory mood with her very own crown – that is coated in glitter! Add the year to make it a crafty keepsake.


  • Construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Clear-drying school glue
  • Glitter
  • A pencil
  • Clear tape


  1. Turn the paper horizontally. Draw the spikes of the crown (triangles) in the center. Depending on how long your paper is you may have to use two pieces (you can tape them together at the ends).
  2. Cut the crown out.
  3. Place the crown on a flat surface. Draw the New Year’s number on it in pencil.
  4. Draw over the pencil with glue. If this is tricky for your child, pour some out into a pool (on a paper plate) and use a thin paintbrush or a toothpick to draw the glue on.
  5. Sprinkle glitter on the glue. Shake off the excess. You can mix a few different colors together in a paper cup to get a New Year’s fireworks themed blend.
  6. Let the glue dry completely.
  7. Wrap the crown around the top of your child’s head and secure at the ends with tape.
