  • Lace Princess Tiara: If you’re going for a princess look, what better way than to top it off with a gorgeous tiara! Want to make it even more fantastic? How about a lace tiara for a little extra pizazz, uniqueness, and vintage appeal? Here’s the how to:
  • Here’s What You Need:
  • Posterboard, 19” long and 4” high
  • Plastic Wrap
  • Tape
  • ½ yard crocheted lace
  • Straight Pin
  • Rubber Gloves
  • Metallic Spray Paint
  • Clear Enamel
  • E6000
  • Scissors
  • Vintage Jewelry (whatever you want to bedazzle it)

  • Here’s How You Do It:

  • Roll the poster board into a 17” circumference. Tape it in place.
  • Wrap the entire tube in plastic so the lace doesn’t stick to the tube, ruining your crown.
  • Grab your lace, wrap it around the tube.
  • Pin the ends together wherever it overlaps
  • Spray the whole crown with your clear enamel. Let it dry before moving onto next step.
  • Once dry, spray it with metallic pain. Let it dry before moving onto next step.
  • Unwrap the lace from the form, then re-wrap around form with painted section facing inwards.
  • Spray it with your clear glaze. Let it dry.
  • Again, spray it with your metallic paint. Let it dry, and then spray it one last time with metallic paint.
  • Once it’s mostly dry, remove the pins, remove it from the form, and allow the crown to dry even longer.
  • Once the crown is completely dry, go ahead and bedazzle it with all of your embellishments! And voila, you’re all done!

  • **For an added touch, make sure your embellishments are blue so you can fulfill your need for “something blue.” These are just a few of my absolute favorite ideas! Now that you have a few ideas and some how-to’s on some great ideas, try ‘em out for yourself and let me know how it went!
