Inflate the next 160 balloon leaving approx. 7 fingers un-inflated.

Make a 2 finger bubble followed by two 1 finger bubbles and make them into pinch twists.

You now need a 2 finger fold twist that gets twisted back into the pinch twists.

You then need another 2 finger bubble followed by a 1 finger pinch twist.

Then make a 2 finger bubble and two more 1 finger bubbles which are twisted into pinch twists.

Make another 2 finger fold twist and twist the 160 into the pinch twists to secure and then
you need the last 2 finger bubble in this section.

Try to keep the rest of the 160 balloon to use as the centre jewel section or use a new 160.

Make two 1 finger pinch twists.

Make a 3 finger fold twist for the centre jewel section, wrap the 160 around the two pinch twists to secure.

Then make a 2 finger bubble and discard the rest of the balloon.
(if you would like the centre jewel section to sit taller then make this bubble a 3 or 4 finger)

The centre pinch twist of the hat section and the centre pinch twist of the jewel section and now twisted together.

Both the knots of the top section are twisted into the pinch twists on either side.
Make sure these are good tight connections.

For quickness you could just have a two jewel princess crown and not add the centre section.

Add the centre section, twist the bubble into the two pinch twists securely.

The jewels are made from a 160 wild berry here but I rather like spring green for a nice emerald look.

Inflate the 160 about half way, make two 1.5 finger bubbles and twist into the
two pinch twists then gently push the wild berry into the 2 finger fold twist.

For quick ness I then made a 2 finger bubble before the next jewel,
this will be popped later or if you like the look of an extra jewel you could leave as is.

The next two bubbles are 2.5 fingers in length for the centre jewel.
Wrap the 160 around the two pinch twists before gently pushing the two bubbles into the 3 finger fold twist.

Then make another 2 finger bubble that will be popped later,
unless you like the look of the extra two jewels.

wrap the 160 balloon around the two pinch twists and then make your last two
1.5 finger bubbles and gently push these into the last 2 finger fold twist.

If you like the look of the five jewelled crown then leave the design as it is.

If you prefer the three jewelled crown then pop the two 2 finger wild berry bubbles.

And there you have the finished crown, hope the instructions were not too difficult to follow?

There is another thread here on balloon chat with a few variations and colour
combinations that you might like to take a look at, crown-bird-butterfly-t10715.html

I also added a different look to the top middle section of the crown
but you do have to use an extra balloon for this.
