So while I was shopping for materials for the Winter Wonderland tiara, I didn’t think that I would be able to find the supplies to make something similar to the Twiggy Wire tiara from my inspiration post.
But – what luck! I found something somewhat similar – though instead of being brown with white ‘berries’ this one was white with ‘crystal’ beads and ‘crystal’ flowers along with white ‘berries’. I wonder if later in the year (spring or summer) if the plainer version might be available – if the ‘crystal’ version is the winter product? Either way – it worked out perfectly, especially for the winter wonderland theme I was working with.
So, I ended up getting it as well, and making up two of the tiaras (although ultimately for the party I only wore one. I often make multiple versions it seems, partially because I guess I just really like crafting, and partially because I’m worried things won’t work out, and I’ll be out of time to make a replacement. This way I have choice…) one from my previous post, and then one with this white wired vine with ‘crystal’ elements.
Since the other tiara was well underway, I basically just constructed it in a similar way, then spread out all of the ‘twigs’ on the vine. I pulled out some of the leaves from the other tiara, but really prefered the tiara monochromatic – so didn’t attach them. Instead I pulled apart a number of the flowers with the rhinestones in the middle, and glued them in instead. Super simple, but I think it looks nice. I didn’t use all of the vine to make the tiara, so I pulled the remaining pieces apart and wound them back in again too.
Since I had a few of the white roses left over, I put together a cute hair clip too. I just started with a black felt pad, glued a clip into it, some leaves on top, and then arranged three of the roses on it. I also trimmed the edge of the petals with some glue and added some clear glitter. Since after all, it’s not a craft project if there isn’t glitter somewhere!
