DIY Princess Tiara On The Cheap

DIY princess crown

My youngest loves Frozen and always wants to dress up as Elsa, but all the kids crowns and tiaras are awful.  They are made of cheap plastic and break within a few days, weeks if we’re really lucky.

So this Christmas I decided I would go one better and make my son his own metal tiara that will hopefully last a bit longer. Even better the whole thing took minutes to make and cost under a tenner!

What You Need

Tiara Headband – I bought a silver plated headband from here for £1.75

Seed Bead Stem Wires – I bought 2 sets of 6 wires from here for £2.00 per set

That’s it, that’s all you need!  It’s £5.75 plus postage for the items you need and a few minutes to create.

Decide on the order of the seed bead stems and how many you would like, I chose to include 7 wires in alternating purple and blue.

Place the middle wire first and wind it tightly around the headband until you are happy it’s secure.  You can always secure with hot glue if it keeps sliding.  Pull out the branches to fill the space.

Continue to add stems until you are happy with the look.

    Ahh that’s beautiful! I bet he loved it. Amazing how cheap it was too, great idea to make it yourself.

    That’s so pretty! Completely agree about the bought plastic tiaras, they break within days (sometimes hours). I might have a go at this.

      Ha ha! Yes, it annoys me with the plastic tiaras! This one is still going strong fortunately!
