When it comes to throwing a party, it’s all about the little details. One way to add some extra sparkle to your celebration is by creating DIY party tiaras. These tiaras are easy to make and can be customized to match any party theme or color scheme.
Let me provide some step-by-step instructions for making DIY party tiaras, as well as tips and tricks for creating the perfect accessory for your celebration.
Before we dive into the instructions, it’s important to gather all the necessary materials. You’ll need:
- Thin metal headbands or tiara bases
- Ribbon, tulle, or sparkling rag pipe cleaners also called chenille wire.
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Embellishments (such as sequins, rhinestones, beads, or flowers)
Step 1: Choose Your Tiara Base
The first step in making a DIY party tiara is to choose your base. Thin metal headbands or tiara bases can be found at most craft stores and provide a sturdy foundation for your tiara. Choose a color that matches your party theme or one that can be easily covered with ribbon, tulle or ragpipe cleaner.
Step 2: Add Ribbon, Tulle or Ragpipes
Once you have your base, it’s time to add some ribbon or tulle. This will serve as the main covering for your tiara and can be customized to match your party theme or color scheme.
Using a hot glue gun, start at one end of the tiara base and attach the ribbon or tulle with a small amount of glue. Wrap the ribbon or tulle tightly around the base, adding glue as needed to keep it in place. Once you’ve reached the other end of the base, cut off any excess ribbon or tulle and secure it with glue.
Step 3: Embellish Your Tiara
Now that you have a covered base, it’s time to embellish your tiara. This is where you can get creative and add as much or as little sparkle as you’d like. Sequins, rhinestones, beads, and flowers are all great options for embellishing your tiara.
Using a hot glue gun, attach your embellishments to the tiara in a pattern or design of your choosing. Be sure to add enough glue to keep your embellishments securely in place.
Step 4: Add Final Touches
Once you’ve embellished your tiara to your liking, it’s time to add any final touches. This might include additional ribbon or tulle, a special symbol or emblem, or even a veil.
If you’re making tiaras for a group, consider adding a special symbol or emblem that represents your party theme or event. For example, if you’re hosting a bridal shower, you might add a small bridal veil or a miniature bouquet of flowers.
Tips and Tricks
- If you’re using hot glue, be careful not to burn yourself. Consider using a pair of tweezers to hold small embellishments in place while the glue dries.
- To create a more textured look, try layering different materials like ribbon, tulle, and lace.
- Consider adding a special symbol or emblem to your tiara to give it a more meaningful and personalized touch..
