You're somewhat experienced with the skills necessary to complete this project, but you haven't mastered all the elements, yet.
Step 1
Lay the foam core down vertically on a piece of scrap cardboard. 
Step 2
To make the foam board resemble an instant photo print, measure 1½" in from both sides and make small marks with a pencil along the length of both sides. 
Step 3
Measure 3" down from the top of the foam core and make small marks with the pencil across the length of the top. 
Step 4
Measure 6" up from the bottom of the foam core and make small marks with the pencil across the length of the bottom. 
Step 5
Follow the pencil marks along the interior perimeter of the foam core, use a ruler and an X-ACTO® knife to cut along the marks on all sides.   
Step 6
In a well-ventilated area, place the foam core sheet outside on top of scrap cardboard. For an ombré effect, spray several coats of Turquoise spray paint. Spray the top half of the foam core down to the bottom left corner. Do not spray paint the bottom right corner. 
Step 7
Apply several coats of the Robin’s Egg spray paint from the bottom right corner over to the bottom left corner, blending the two paint colors together. Continue spraying with each color until the desired ombré effect is achieved. Set board aside to dry for several minutes.
 
TIP: Avoid spraying too close to the foam board, as this could cause the paint to puddle, drip or streak.  
Step 8
Create stamped stars to embellish the foam board. Simply ink a star wood stamp with a Razzberry ink pad and press the stamp down onto a sheet of 8½"x11" size white cardstock. Repeat the stamping process until the desired amount of stars is achieved. Cut out the stamped stars. 
Step 9
Arrange glitter chipboard stars and stamped stars around the foam board as desired, and glue into place using a hot glue gun.  
Step 10
When glue has dried, trim edges of stars that are hanging off the edge of the foam board. 
Step 11
Make a chenille stem crown fit for a queen. Simply twist three gold chenille stems together to make one long stem. Wrap the chenille stem around your head and mark with your finger where to tie the two ends together to make a round crown. Twist the ends together. 
Step 12
Create a large V-shape (about 5" in height) using a gold chenille stem. Twist the V-shape onto the crown in the middle to create the main point on the crown. 
Step 13
Create two smaller V-shape points (about 3" in height) to twist along each side of the main point. 
Step 14
Create the last two points (about 1½" in height) and twist them onto the crown.
