Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MPCCD Crown for Mary, Queen of Heaven!
I use this every year for my CCD class on Mary, Queen of Heaven. We make a crown to remind us how Mary is in Heaven so we can call on her to help us.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by bdesigns Disappointing OTC not listening on this one!
Reviews back to 2012 have been saying the same thing...the jewels need to be self-adhesive! The sequins don't even need to be included...they are just overkill. Leave the big jewels and make them self-adhesive and this will be a winner craft! I got it for my Kindergarten Sunday school and they love the crowns! They had to sit still while we came around with glue dots for every jewel! The sequins just went in the garbage! Looking at the other reviews, I'm shocked and dismayed that OTC is ignoring this request. I've never seen that. Usually you are jumping through hoops to make the crafts better! Just a little disappointed. The kids looked awesome in their crowns. Just wish they could've done more of it themselves.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Creativ Great Craft - Kids loved it
The kids loved assembling the crowns. Everything that was needed came with the kit. There were plenty of jewels. We also purchased the glue dots to use as well.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Doriliz Not what I expected
I expected this to be similar to the foam tiara craft kit but it is not. Nothing in this kit is self adhesive. You have to use glue for everything. The kit comes with individually packaged sets of jewels, sequins, and glitter and all require glue. The crown has to be stapled or glued to the size of the child's head.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sbelle27 Perfect for royal birthday!
I purchased these for my daughters' 1st bday party to match the princess theme. The kids at the party (3 to 8 years old) loved making the crowns for the party craft, and enjoyed wearing their crown creations for the rest of the party too! I thought that the jewels had a peel off self adhesive, but they do not. I found that a regular office glue stick kept the jewels in place for the party...even with the kids wearing the crowns and playing/running around. The glue takes a while to dry (probably a few hours), but keeps them in place while drying. We used a strip of duct tape to hold the crown closed in the back, just be ause it was quick/easy. I got these crowns for the boys and the foam tiaras and pastel self adhesive jewels for the girls. Both were such a big hit with the kids and a great price!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ZazaChang Could be better
I really wanted to like this.
We didn't use anything that came with kit other than the crowns themselves. They looked cute on the kids once assembled BUT really wish it came like the princess crown kits that had adhesive jewels and an expandable band. Ended up using "Glue Dots", placed one on an end so that when the kids were done decorating (with the self adhesive jewel stickers I bought separately) all they had to do was remove the backing of the glue dot (that I had left on) and stick that end wherever fits best for the child

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WCRJ Good, but a few suggestions
Great product. I would love a way for the crown to have stayed on without stapling or gluing. Also, would have like self-adhesive jewels instead of glue on jewels.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RileyandSophiasMom Great product & price
These crowns were a great buy. I used them as an activity for the boys at my daughter's princess themed birthday party and they were a hit! They are constructed well and the price is fantastic considering it includes the foam crowns and decorative jewels. The only thing I was not crazy about is that the decorative jewels and sequins are not adhesive. It would have been ideal if they did not require the use of glue for the art project.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kathleen1111 No adhesive
None of the decorations for the crown had adhesive. Furthermore, the foam strips that are suppose to come together into a circle to form a crown do not have any adhesive on them or any way to latch the ends together. Thank goodness I tried to put together a sample crown before our party tomorrow. As it is, the kits are completely worthless in every way without purchasing adhesive to make the crown and attach the jewels. Off to the craft store I go ...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tam631 Good for Sabbath School
We bought these crowns for use with our Heaven Theme, and use them every week for 7 weeks. The only problem we have with them is that they break loose easily. We staple them or paper clip them... but somehow some always break open. Other then that we really love these crowns.
