I created a 2D crown outline in blender which looks like this: enter image description here

I want to fill the outline and "inline" in this mesh object, without filling the center: enter image description here

How do I achieve that?

    $\begingroup$ Convert it back to a curve, go to the curve properties, set it to 2D, and set the fill mode to something other than "None" and back to a mesh :) $\endgroup$

You will have to break it up into multiple faces. A single 3-D face cannot really have a hole in it. I would recommend making single edge “bridges” at the marked locations. marked for edge bridges

Convert your object to a curve, go to the curve properties (Green triangle icon), set it to 2D, and set the fill mode to something other than "None" and convert it back to a mesh.

The geometry wil be awful though. Don't try to animate it.
