Hello! Today’s craft was lots of fun (and frustrating) to make! I was inspired to make my tiara by a Pinterest post. Unfortunately, mine didn’t go quite as smooth as the Pinterest post, but I’m incredibly pleased with how my tiara turned out!
What you’ll need:
-Pearl Paint (I used Martha Stewart Brand)
-Hot Glue Gun
The Pinterest post I found used a dollar store tiara, however I didn’t like the selection at the dollar store, a lot of the tiaras were made of plastic and weren’t going to hold up once the shells were attached. I purchased my tiara from Walmart. I made sure that the tiara had higher arches so that I had surface area to attach the shells. I started by painting the shells. Once they were dry, I started gluing the shells on from the center out. The glue situation was a little frustrating. Hot glue was good for a quick fix, however, it wasn’t holding up. I ended up using both wood glue and hot glue. The wood glue provided a stronger bond over time. I attached the tiny shells and crafting pearls using super glue. I love the way my mermaid tiara turned out! Hope y’all enjoy!!!
