D.I.Y: Crystal Gem Tiara

3.7.2012

I got lot’s of compliments on this little pretty headband i made that I wore during Fashion Week…..I also felt like a little princess in it, which is never a bad thing!

What you need:

~Crystal Plastic Rocks, I discovered these one day exploring the flower district here in New York. I wasn’t quite sure what i would make with them at the time. But I knew I would come up with something….they were too amazing to pass up!

~Glue Gun

~Glue Sticks

~Head band, the metals can hurt but at least you know they won’t break! And when putting much time into a craft project…you wouldn’t want that! Instead of wearing it all day, I’ll just wear them for a night out, or to an event.

~newspaper, duh….unless you want to ruin your table.  I am fortunate enough to  have a craft table that can be messed up as much as I feel like!

Step 1: Once the glue gun is all heated up I started the first stone right above my ear by glueing just a little bit to the bottom of the stone onto the headband.

Step 2: I continue this all the way around until the other side is even. And then let dry!

And ta da! It’s really simple, and very few things go into it.  It’s just a matter of finding those little plastic crystal rocks! If you do not live in New York, I bet Michael’s has them in their floral section? They also remind me of those rocks at the bottom of an aquarium, but not as heavy! They should be super light, you don’t want to wear real rocks on your head!
