We recently attended a surprise birthday party for one of Husband's co-workers. Since she also loves to craft, I knew I had to make something extra special for the occasion. In addition to a pretty card:
...I made my first tiara to help her celebrate the big day.
I cut a pattern from a piece of bristol paper, since it's sturdy and the longest type of paper I had. I used the pattern to cut two pieces of fabric. I used spray adhesive to sandwich the bristol between the two pieces of fabric and then I stitched along the edges to make sure the crown wouldn't come apart.
I added a large crepe paper rosette to the front, with glittered numbers.
Vintage flowers, tatted doilies, and sparkly stars accent it.
And a fluffy crepe paper ruffle with pom pom trim finish off the bottom.
This was my first attempt at making a tiara, but it certainly won't be my last! I can't wait to make more. I think I'll have one to wear for every holiday!
