Instructions

  1. Step 1 1

    Cut a length of wire long enough to fit around your head. Bend it in to a nice shape so that it will fit your head.

  2. Step 2 2

    Curl up the sharp edges with some pliers.

  3. Step 3 3

    Take a strip, twice the length of the last, of the thinner wire and starting at one end of the thick wire start wrapping the thin wire around and around until you reach the other end.

  4. Step 4 4

    Take two more strips of thin wire, the same length as the last one, and attach them to each end. Wrap around for about 4 or 5 inches and then stop.

  5. Step 5 5

    Attach a bead.

  6. Step 6 6

    Attach a few smaller beads and another type of bead.

  7. Step 7 7

    Repeat the pattern back down and wrap the wire around the base a couple of times.

  8. Step 8 8

    Repeat the previous pattern on the other side of the base. Remember symmetry is the key with tiaras. Then work a longer strip in various beads.

  9. Step 9 9

    When the two long strips meet in the middle thread them both through one central bead (this should be that extra special bead).




  10. Step 10 10

    From the center work another row of beads (I choose to do mine in a contrasting colour).

  11. Step 11 11

    String the wire through a bead on either side to form a little arc of beads coming out from the middle.

  12. Step 12 12

    Remember to keep the bead count and pattern even on either side.

  13. Step 13 13

    Add more beads and work your way down from the top.

  14. Step 14 14

    When you reach the bottom wrap the wire around the base a couple of times.

  15. Step 15 15

    Thread the wire through the bottom bead of the string you just completed and work you way back up.

  16. Step 16 16

    When you reach the top wrap the wire around the outside of the main bead a couple of times.

  17. Step 17 17

    Work this thread down and wrap it through the bead (that is closer to the center) on the very first string you made. Wrap the remaining wire around the base until you reach the tiara end and wrap it off.
