Crowning Glory

I am fascinated with crowns.  I think every woman should have one (or two!)  Wearing one will make you feel regal, important and wise.  Many of the dolls I make wear tiaras.

This diadem was made to complete and compliment the "All the Bells and Whistles" bustier I made a few months back.
diadem is constructed of bubble gum wrappers, candy wrappers, gum wrappers, lollipops, buttons, sequins, rick rack trim

 addition of bells and whistles to the bustier; necklace made of balloons

I challenge you to make your own tiara.  It can be simple using construction paper, cereal boxes, book pages, greeting cards, etc. or ornate with luscious silks and velvet.  You will be amazed how easy it is to do - just give it a whirl!
