Time for my second Halloween DIY! This time it’s this spooky and magical crown to wear if you want to dress up as a fairy queen or a wicked witch or just to wear in everyday life. You could easily paint it white and put some glitter on it instead and be some kind of ice queen. The possibilities are endless!
- Something to cut the wire with
- A brush
- Glue gun
Start by making a long and bendy twig into a circle that fits your head. Gently twist the ends around the twig. It might look like a weird egg at the moment, but that’s okay. Then take the wire and wrap it around the twig. This will enable you to shape it into a circle.Then keep wrapping the wire around and start including twigs. Where you place the twigs will shape your crown, so try and compose it from the start. I wanted mine to be higher at the front and have like a triangular shape, but yours can be equal all around or whatever you want.
I just kept attaching twigs with the wire, building up a base and always keeping in mind where I wanted the front to be and how it would look from there.
Time for the glue gun! When you’ve made a base that’s sturdy enough it’s easier to just glue the twigs to it.
It should start looking something like this.
I decided my front was done for now so I started covering the base circle with glue to make it more comfortable and make it more organic. And also to cover up the wires. So here’s where you’ll need a ton of glue. Basically just start to build it up and sculpt the base using the glue.
As the glue is drying you can carefully shape it with your fingers. DON’T DO THIS IMMEDIATELY as it will burn your fingers really bad. I accidentally grabbed the glue part once and it hurts like hell. Keep building the glue on top of itself until it’s thick enough and looks good. Like whatever you like, you do you.
I made it a bit thicker in the front because I wanted to.
Time for the last step: painting it! If you have spray paint that might be easier but I didn’t and it wasn’t too horrible to paint it like this so it works.And then it’s done! A spooky and magical black crown!
Time to dress up!!You can wear it like this and just be cool in general.
Or just put on some kind of cape and totally feel like a dark fairy. Best feeling ever.
