DIY Origami Crown | 3D Paper Hat Instruction for Beginners

Introduction:

Making a crown can be easy by following the instructions below. For this origami crown,  you will only be needing a square piece of paper. Any size will do, but if you want to wear it as a hat instead of using it as a decoration, then use an extra-large piece of paper.

This is an easy origami that you can make in less than a minute once you are familiar with the steps. It’s also pretty easy.

Once you have folded it, you can add some details to your origami crown. Have fun and let’s start folding.
