DIY Aurora Queen of the Moors Crown

This DIY Queen of the Moors Crown was inspired when I received an early release copy of Disney’s Maleficent from Click Communication to help promote the in-store release on November 4th. All opinions, ideas, and photos are entirely my own.

“For in the other kingdom, the Moors lived every manner of strange and wonderful creature.

And they needed neither king nor queen but trusted in one another.”

Maleficent is my new all-time favorite Disney movie EVER! That’s saying a lot. I’m a Disney freak. One might think it’s because I have a million kids so I had to learn to embrace them, but that’s not true. One of my very first vivid memories as a child was going to the movie theater with my mom and my sisters to watch a Disney movie. I was hooked at about the age of 3 and things haven’t changed since, and I never miss a single new release. Unfortunately, because there were questions about whether Maleficent was completely kid friendly, I opted to skip it at the theater *SIGH* and anxiously await the release of the DVD in store. And that time has come! Disney’s Maleficent will be available on Disney Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, Digital HD, Disney Movies Anywhere, DVD, and On-Demand November 4, 2014! I got an early release copy, and I’m not going to ruin it for you if you haven’t already seen it, but I’m going to tell you…again…I loved it and have watched it several times. And for the record, there was nothing even remotely frightening to my 8 year old daughter in the movie and she loves it too! We loved it so much that it inspired me, a total craft hater, to craft an Aurora’s Queen of the Moors Crown. Want to make one for your little princess before the in-store release? It’s super easy. If I can do this, anyone can!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Thick, bendable wire
  • Electrical tape
  • A random assortment of leaves (the fake foliage you can buy at any big box store)
  • Random embellishments (I used a few beads and some sparkly gold twigs)
  • Scissors
  • Gold spray paint
  • Hot glue gun

Start with the wire. Measure the piece around your queen’s head and cut it accordingly, overlapping by about 2 or so inches. Take the electrical tape and tape the overlapping wire together. Be sure to cover the whole area to avoid sharp edges.

Cut the leaves off of the stems, spray paint both sides gold, then start hot gluing them on the wire band as randomly or neatly as you see fit until the entire band is covered to your liking.

Clip your other, smaller leaves, twigs, etc. and hot glue them as you’d like to get the desired look and depth of the crown.

That’s it! When you’re done, you have a golden crown inspired by a movie that you either already love, or you’re going to love as soon as you see it on November 4th! This was a fun project that my daughter was able to help with and she absolutely adores the results.

November 4th is just around the corner, hurry up and preorder your copy of Maleficent today, and then head to the store to pick up supplies to make your own Queen of the Moors Crown before it arrives. In the meantime, check out all of the buzz about Malefient on Facebook and Twitter. If you’ve already seen the movie, I’d love to hear what you thought of it. If you’re anxiously awaiting the in-store release, let me know what you think of it as soon as you see it. Seriously y’all…Maleficent FTW!
