DIY tiara - very easy and very cheap! instructions included
Posted 19 February 2009 - 03:29 PM
I need to make this really clear: I have NEVER made anything resembling jewellery in my life (well apart from pasta necklaces for my Mum when I was about 6!) but am really pleased with the tiaras I've made and they were so easy I thought someone else on here might be able to enjoy making them as I have.
I have now made one for me and one each for my three bridesmaids and colour co-ordinated the stones to match their dress colours (olive and gold). I want to add a few more crystals to mine but can't find the ones I like in stock at the moment but currently it has cost me less than £20 to make all of them and I have material spare to make hair combs for other special guests.
I bought all the stuff at epbeads.co.uk, there were loads of ebay sellers but seeing as they made the fantastic tutorial below I felt I wanted to reward them with some business. People who have made jewellery before might not need to buy the "ready-made" sprays as I did.
I followed these two youtube tutorials:
YouTube - Part one of our tiara making tutorial
YouTube - Part two of our tiara making tutorial
Making all four took me just under two hours (I was watching 27 dresses at the same time which made it an even more enjoyable experience!).
Recommend doing this as very personal, special and CHEAP!
