One thing that always catches my eye is a crown. They come in all sorts of glorious shapes and sizes, and let’s face it, most girls would love to be treated as a princess, meet prince charming and live happily ever after! I couldn’t resist making one for myself to celebrate how fortunate I am to have a charming prince and to wear an invisible crown because I am a child of the King of kings.
- wire lampshade frame
- 16 metal spoons
- old brooch
- ribbon (length and width depend on size of the frame)
- beads (a handful of very small ones)
You will also need:
- wire cutter
- blue tack (e.g. Prestik)
- glue gun
- fabric glue
- Using a wire cutter, snip of the spoon handles from their bowls.
- Place the spoon-bowls edge to edge to form a wreath, or secure them temporarily with blue tack to the frame as required. When you are satisfied with the layout, glue them into place. You will need loads of glue and so I suggest sprinkling beautiful beads about to disguise it.
- Use ribbon to decorate the crown as you wish. You could weave it around the base and the top as shown.
- Position the brooch as a centre piece and secure with glue. Leave to dry before enjoying your glimmering garland.
