My tiara turned into more of a crown, I hope it still counts...But it was fun to make nonetheless!



The base for the crown/tiara was some leftover boning (from a dress I made) wrapped with red embroidery floss. I also used a deck of cards (not all 52, though), craft paint, red tulle, and a glue gun for assembly (because I couldn't figure out how to sew it together).

I kind of went picture crazy, because I couldn't quite capture it correctly.


Front, with slightly askew tiara/crown.

Veil, laid out sort of flat.


Detail of veil decoration (I cut pieces out of the cards, decorated some with craft paint and attached them to the veil).


Tiara/Crown part not on my head.

That's CUTE!

I've been trying to think of some "gambling themed" awards (don't ask!).  Maybe something like this will work.  Wink

What fun!  Smiley

Very nice tiara Smiley I love that you used all queens for the cards and turned some of the strips around to give it some color! The suits on the veil makes it! Great job!

It has a very Alice in Wonderland feel-and who doesn't love tulle??
