Craft: Make a Doll Sized Flower Tiara / Crown

Hi, everyone! Some of you might be waiting to see who
won the giveaway with Pippy La Jade Jean Co.
I am just waiting for one thing, and I hope to post the results maybe later today.
But for now, how about a craft? This is a quick and easy project,
so let's get started making a doll sized flower tiara!

Here is what mine looks like!



You will need:  floral wire that is covered in this brown twig-looking stuff,
wire cutters
small sprigs of flowers
glue gun and glue sticks


Measure the floral wire around your doll's head.
Mine is about 13" long. Cut 2 pieces the same length.


Here I have 2 of them.



Start twisting the 2 pieces together.



All done twisting.



Now either twist them together at the end, or if that's too hard, hot glue them together,
or tie them together with some brown string. I hot glued mine.


Now for the fun part. Start decorating! I just cut some of this baby's breath, and some other
little flowers, and even the leaves that came with the baby's breath, as you will see below.


Here are a bunch of little pieces I have cut to decorate my tiara.
You can cut them as short or long as you want, and twist them around or glue them on.
I had to glue most of mine.

One down, a bunch more to go. lol



Here is my finished tiara. See the little leaves? Those were with the baby's breath,
and I just twisted them around and glued them to the tiara.






Then for version 2, I just took these little shiny sprigs and twisted them around for a simple style.



I like how simple it is. And now for a little photoshoot.....




































I hope you enjoyed!
