DIY Crown

Tonight I worked on a little accessory I have been wanting to make for a while. My daughter will be 6 Months in 2 days, so that means that I will be taking her pictures soon! I'm so happy and sad. Happy that she is growing up healthy and beautiful, but sad because she is no longer my little baby. I love her so much, it would be nice to enjoy her at this age forever. :') I do look forward to the future, what it will bring for us I do not know, but I plan to embrace it all with arms wide open. :) I got a little off topic. Haha. Anyways, I decided to make her a princes style DIY crown tiara for her pictures. I had seen a few and I always thought they were beautiful. ( I also plan to use it on her first birthday ) How exciting! I will say that it took me a while to make it since I used quite a few different materials. I used ribbon, scraps of cloth, scrapbook paper, lace, and some hemp. In the end, for it being my first crown I am amazed at how pretty it is. Even though I feel like it could be a little better, I can't wait to put it on Levia and just see how beautiful she will look wearing it. :)
The only thing this picture did not capture well was the colour pink. The pink that I use is a more of a baby girl pink, soft but bright. Only this picture has it looking bland and a little on the pastel side.


  1. love that I can finally see this crown in its entirety. beautiful. well done!

    1. Thank you, they were made from stuff I had laying around...I have a big box of craft stuff that I add to every week, it makes it so easy for when I'm ready to start DIY projects... :)
