Make a pain-free costume tiara

For all of the Halloween princesses out there, I am reblogging a post I did a few months ago. Here is a really easy way to make a costume tiara stay on and feel comfortable. ???????????????????????????????

I’m not sure whose head they had in mind when they made these plastic tiaras, but they seem to draw blood from all of the heads in our house. I mean for fifty cents I don’t expect a custom fit, but it should at least not require a trip to the emergency room.

Since this was a gift, I hated to just throw it away. I thought I would experiment to see if I could find a way for my daughter to wear this thing comfortably.

Not too comfortably, though. I really don’t want to encourage the everyday use of a tiara.

Believe it or not, this thing actually had little tiny, plastic screws that held it together. Once I got those two screws out, the fancy part just came right off!

???????????????????????????????

I just used two plain hair clips and hot glued the tiara to the pincher part of the clip. Be sure not to glue the tiara over the entire opening of the pincher, because then it won’t open and close.

???????????????????????????????

Now it just clips right into her hair like barrettes and the little royal princess can play pain free!

  1. Nice! I don’t know, though – that looks pretty comfortable . . . 🙂
    I actually wear a tiara when I clean house. I found it at a prom dress shop for $25, and I put it on to remind myself to ditch the selfish attitude and remember that I am treating my family like royalty, and I am not the slave, but I am to lead with the royal attitude, as we are all children of the King. Tiara cleaning rocks!

What do you think? I would really love to know!!
