I've really been digging the cartoon Adventure Time! I was poking around online the other day and noticed there is a pattern to make Finn's hat online, which inspired me to make a goofy sort of tutorial on Princess Bubblegum's crown. Above are the measurements I followed for cutting mine out – if you are making this for a child I'd just make the crown point's measurements slightly smaller.
Its pretty straight forward – cut out the above shape from paper, paint yellow, add the blue jewel dot (I made mine pink with glitter!), and allow to dry. Then you wrap around your head to figure out the right fit (the 1/2 extra should overlap slightly), then remove from your head and staple or tape the paper to stay in place. That's it! A little tip – when I was cutting my crown out, I folded it in half to make the cutting go faster and be more even! Let me know if you make one for yourself or your little ones – I'd love to see!
And since its Thursday, here are some fun Adventure Time links I like:
Adventure time episodes for free on Cartoon Network's site! Ok, it looks like there are actually only a few full clips, but still not bad for free!
Pictures to make your own Adventure Time Iron-On prints! Very cool, I love the one with Finn, Jake Lady Rainicorn and Princess Bubblegum all together. There are also cool icons and wallpapers there too!
Finn and Princess Bubblegum cosplay – cuuute. If I still have pink hair around Halloween, I might have to dress up as this with my boyfriend :) and I really want that little Lady Rainicorn!
Finn Hat Pattern – I want to make this! Maybe when fall rolls around?
Have you watched adventure time yet? I think its my favorite kid's show at the moment. 🙂
