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!


Step 6: Bonus!!!

Can also be worn as a necklace, two ways!

    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.

    Not at all, it sits up and away on the head and your shoulders help distance anyone from any possible harm. The plastic also bends and isn't rigid.
