Make a big sparkly crown for Three Kings’ Day Eve

A DIY cardboard crown to wear to the procession.

At Christmastime in Spanish communities around the world, the Three Wise Men bring gifts for children on 6 January, known as Three Kings’ Day – or Dia De Los Reyes. The day before, people parade through towns and cities in big colourful processions, representing the journey made by travelers to Bethlehem after the birth of baby Jesus.

If you’re going to a Three Kings’ Day Eve procession, why not jazz up your woolly hat with your own sparkly crown? A crown fit for the Three Wise Men themselves! (And even if you don’t go to a procession, you can wear it round the house to do your royal duties.) Ready Your Majesty?
