Intro: Sun Goddess Crown / Headband

Super easy, inexpensive project with big impact and wow factor. Great for cosplay and adding pow to a costume.

Step 1: Materials

Plastic headband

Zip ties

Metallic spray paint or

metallic acrylic paint and brush

Step 2: Lay Out Zip Ties to Create a Pattern for Your Crown

You can use zip ties of all equal length or a variety of sizes to create dimension.

Step 3: Zip the Zip Ties Onto Headband

I started the center and worked my way down each side evenly until done.

Step 4: Paint

Paint one side, allow to dry. Flip over and paint other side. Allow to dry.

Step 5: Wear With Head Held High!

Enjoy!

Step 6: Bonus!!!

Can also be worn as a necklace, two ways!

    This is awesome! I never guessed zip ties either, I figured it was metal. Great idea and really effective, I bet it's pretty comfortable and light.

    I can't beleive this is zip ties! Nicely done :) Would be fun to wear as a necklace, but I'm sure I'd bother everyone around me ;)

    Actually, it stays above the bust line as a necklace and doesn't bother. Also, if you look at the pics on the dress-form, you have you have to take into consideration that it has no shoulders. So it really doesn't poke at anybody when you wear it as a necklace. So glad you liked it!

    Yes I did! Observant eye! It's tulle and diamond mesh. However, I'm not wearing it. Check my profile pic. =)

    Everything about this is stunning, and both DIYs are super clever. I'm about to steal this entire outfit.
