A Princess tiara made from gold foil doilies! Easy - and fun to make for children's birthday or tea parties!

This  is what you will need: 
  • 2 - 12 inch pipe cleaners *
  • 1 -  5" or 6" inch doily 
  • 2 - 3" or 3.5" inch doilies
  • 1 - roll of clear double sided tape

 *If pipe cleaners are not available a flat piece of stiff paper or ribbon can be used to attach the doilies to.

Fold all three doilies in half.

Add a piece of double sided tape along the inside fold of doily. 
 Twist the ends of the pipe cleans together to form one long piece. 

You now have the doilies folded with tape applied and the pipe cleans twisted together to form one long piece

Use the largest of the three doilies - and place the pipe cleaner across the inside fold by the double sided tape. Fold the doily over the pipe cleaner.

Repeat this process with the two smaller doilies along each side of the larger doily - I overlapped mine a bit.


If you need to add bits more of double sided tape to the doilies once  assembled go ahead!

 The two "loose" ends of the pipe cleaners are twisted to the "perfect" size! around the head of the princess!
SO PRETTY! But at this point you can further embellish with sequins, sparkles whatever!
