    HI, Can you please, please, please tell me how you get it to stay on their head? I can’t figure it out! Thank you for the tutorial!

      Hi, we recommend one or two bobby pins at the base of the crown. Use pins the same color as their hair and you’ll barely see them.

    I'm making these this week. I was wondering if we need to use the paint or can I skip that step and go straight to the glitter?
