Princess Tiara

About this design:

My daughter really wanted to be a princess for Halloween last year, so she chose Rapunzel's wedding dress from the Disney movie short. I made this with $1 gold craft wire & size E silver-lined crystal beads. It is still in perfect shape, which is pretty durable considering it gets played with by a 5 year old girl nearly daily. I made the dress from old clothes & material I had laying around.


Gold Craft Wire 18 gauge & 32 gauge, Size E Beads Crystal Silver-Lined

    Could she be more adorable? I think not :) Fantastic costume; love that you gave the old clothes a new purpose! I’ll bet your daughter’s friends would LOVE to have a tiara like hers, too.
