A Tutorial Fit For A Queen !

I have been asked many times, how to make my
"little" tiaras...


so I thought I give a "little" tutorial.

You start with a fresh batch of chenille/metallic stems.
You might need to tweak a few into oblivion before
you get it the way you like it.
bend it like so...(cat not included!)




make the main center loop whatever size you
wish (to make a larger tiara twist several stems
together).....


bend the ends upward to begin the smaller
loops....


bring the ends down and around to make the side loops...
Just tweak the stem to make the loops stay side-by-side.




Bring the ends around the back to form a circle....








and twist the ends together to secure.





And viola! A tiara! They literally take less than 1
minute to make, you can finish an entire package
in no time at all!!!
They can be used for a million fun little thing!
Napkin rings, package tie-ons, party favors, ornaments,
you name it!
