1  Re: Tiara: My first ever tiara, not exactly the traditional version... in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by GoTo on: September 06, 2006 01:18:56 PM
Thanks everyone!  It's hard to say how long it took to make the hardware tiara, I did it in spurts in the car and at my in-laws after everyone else went to bed.  (I'm a night owl.)

I just made my second tiara... and again, while making it I was at my in-laws.  Curious trend...

My niece came with us, she's turning 16 this week.  She said she'd like a tiara to wear on her sixteenth birthday.  I happened to bring my leftover wire from the dollar store challenge to play with, so I went to the only area store that I thought might have beads--it was a Dollar Tree.  So for a few more dollars I got a couple of bracelets and a bead kit and put together a seaside themed tiara for her and thought I'd share.  I'd say this one took me about 3 hours, maybe a little longer to make this one.  Just wire and silver colored, white and green beads--some glass, some plastic.

Unfortunately I didn't think to use my close up focus, so the pictures aren't the clearest, but I think you'll get the idea.  Pale background:

2  Tiara: My first ever tiara, not exactly the traditional version... in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by GoTo on: June 06, 2005 04:42:45 PM
So I entered the Dollar Store Challenge, (have you seen that board yet? https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=37927.0 , spend up to $5.00 and make something fabulous from the goodies--go vote on your favorite!), and what I came up with was a tiara made from the hardware supplies I bought.   I haven't seen too many tiara posts lately, so I thought I'd share my finished product here too.

Below are the supplies I started with and my new-fangled tiara.  Now I just have to find someplace to wear it!  Cleaning the house, doing laundry, whenever I am visiting the craftster site... but how will I rationalize wearing it to the supermarket?

Check out the upcoming challenges and challenge ideas:

Wow!  What an interesting assortment of products this challenge has inspired.  OK, here's my entry:

The dollar store had a lovely assortment of hardware, so I bought three packages of various sized screws, bolts, nuts and washers.  I also bought a three pack of spooled wire, for a total of $4.00.  I used some glue, some of those infamous glass gems I had hanging around and a dot of tinfoil, <edit>I forgot to say my FIL happily added the lovely star washer and bolt to my supplies to top off my project (small picture on right)<edit>:

Those are awesome! Did someone watch Craft Corner Deathmatch?

I just saw that episode--we don't get Style network but it was showing repeats on "E!" (channel 51 in my area, just north of NYC).  They are playing 4 episodes back to back on this rainy Saturday, great timing!

They were doing exactly this process with items collected from the trash, and putting them between bigger pieces of glass.  I also made one about the size they use on the show, I just didn't include the picture.  I think of it as a bottle coaster.  Here it is alone below, and then with the beverage coasters, check my website for larger pics:

Now a Craftster Craft Challenge Prize!!!

Join challenge number 10 for a chance to win a kit to make your own set of coasters!
Click here: Craftster Craft Challenge #10

This fall I spent a lot of time collecting and pressing leaves in my new flower press--now I have hundreds of them in a box.   I came up with a few uses for them, these coasters are one of them.  I made some with silver colored edges and some with copper.  I love the way they look laid out flat or all stacked up.  Can you tell fall is my favorite season? 

New images added of the matching bottle coaster on page 2 of this topic.
