Today I'm posting some paper crowns that were published in Green Craft Magazine last year.  They are "green" because they have been upcycled from *ahem* toilet paper tubes that I cut into crowns.  I suppose you could easily use paper towel tubes or even just create your own crown out of cardstock. I had fun painting them with metallic paints, then using metallic paint markers or Inka Gold (comes in a variety of colors, not just gold) on the edges.  The floral crown is made by decoupaging (a fancy way to say "gluing") a paper napkin to the crown, then trimming off the excess after it dries.  I used a variety of trims, washi tape, and faux pearls/diamonds as embellishments.  These would be fun to give in lieu of a birthday card or to use as place settings at a party.
