Sometimes a cute outfit just doesn’t feel like enough. Why not top off the look with a crown that will make you stand out at any party? Today we’ve got a tutorial for confetti crowns by our DIY contributor, Jessica of The Confetti Bar. Here’s what Jessica has to say about her fun style:

“What girl doesn’t need a colorful, magical confetti crown to adorn her head? While it would obviously make a great addition to your NYE ensemble, these beauties are perfect for any occasion! Choose colors to suit your mood, and you can even get crazy and add on a few other embellishments, such as flowers or ribbon.”

instructions

1.  Cut off a piece of wire that is approximately 25″ long. This could vary depending on the size crown you plan to make.

2. Bend the wire into a circle, overlapping some of the wire and twisting it to secure. Again, the size crown you want will determine how big to make the circle, but a standard size is roughly 7″ in diameter. (It doesn’t need to look perfect!)

3. Using your hot glue gun and working in small sections, run a little glue around the edge of the wire and then quickly “dip” that section in confetti. Repeat until the whole crown is covered. Tip: When you get to the end points of the wire, make sure you add a little extra glue so it will cover any sharp areas.

If you find one coat of confetti isn’t enough, feel free to go back in and add another layer!
