Tin Foil Tiara
January 21st, 2011 by Craftylocks

Shiny, sparkly and pretty too – perfect for any princess.

The tin foil can be a bit tricky for little hands to cope with but they can help with it, they can enjoy the fun of decorating the tiara once the basic shape is made and then of course they can wear it.

The tin foil creates the sparkle, but pipe cleaners are what create the structure. Cut one strip of foil slightly longer than the pipecleaner. Roll the pipecleaner in the tin foil and then squish the foil around the pipecleaner.

Shape the foil covered pipecleaner into a curve.

Cut three pipecleaners in half. Keep five of the six halves and cover each one in foil by rolling it in foil slightly longer than the pipecleaner and squeezing it firmly. Fold the halves in half gently so you don’t split the foil.

Attach the folded halves to the curved piece by wrapping the ends over the curve. You must do this gently as the tin foil will split if you are too rough.

Decorate with stars, gems or glitter.
