  1. Start by making two circles of wire. Make them as big as you want. This is the base of your crown.
  2. Fasten them together with more wire.
  3. Shape the top of the crown from four pieces of wire.
  4. Glue tinsel to all the wires with a hot glue gun.
  5. Glue a tassel on the underside of the top of the crown.
