What Is A Senior Crown?

If your school doesn’t do senior crowns, you’ve probably never heard of this tradition. Basically, senior crowns are just a celebration of being in your last year of high school! This tradition is especially popular with senior girls, but guys do wear them too!

Students will decorate crowns and wear them either on the first day of senior year, during the first week, or certain other days throughout the year. Different schools have different traditions on when to wear the senior crown.

Seniors will typically design their crowns with their school colors, their favorite sports or hobbies, or just with designs and patterns they like. This is all about celebrating your accomplishments so make sure your crown really represents you and your interests!

How Do You Make A Senior Crown?

It’s not too difficult to make a senior crown. You’ll just need the following supplies:

  • Paper crown (you could even use the Burger King crowns they give out)
  • Paint & paint brushes
  • Hot glue
  • Decorations

To make your senior crown, you’ll first need to make or buy a paper crown. You could cut out your own paper crown out of card stock, buy a pack of paper crowns from Amazon, or go get one of the free paper crowns from Burger King.

Paint the front and back of your paper crown with any color you like. It’s important that both sides are painted because you’ll be able to see the inside of the crown when you’re wearing it.

Then just decorate your crown however you’d like! Not sure what decorations to choose? Don’t worry, we have you covered. Here are 17 of super cute senior crown decoration ideas.
