The Dollar Diva

Red glitter “LOVE” crown

12.12.12 projects Stars 029Red glittery ‘Derby’ style New Year’s party hat from Dollar Tree.

12.12.12 projects Stars 030With VERY sharp scissors, cut off the brim, far enough up the hat that you have flat sides.

12.12.12 projects Stars 031Cut off the TOP, leaving a little bit of curve but not much.  (save that top part and cut HEARTS out of it!)

12.12.12 projects Stars 032Turn it upside down (WIDER part at the top now) and cut points all the way around.  You can ‘be done’ here, or add some embellishing.

12.26.12 Valentine crafts 116Of course, I HAD to embellish mine a bit.  I think this was an old set of scrapbook stickers from DT, back in the day when they carried scrapbook stuff.  They had the ‘foam stickies’ on the back.  That stuff does NOT stick to glitter!  Pull them off and apply tacky glue to the back of the items you want to add.

12.26.12 Valentine crafts 117That’s all I did with this one.  If you are lucky enough to find some of the TALLER flat top glitter hats (like DT used to carry!) they make even BETTER crowns!

12.12.12 projects Stars 094These are some that I made from those ‘old style’ hats.  They have more height and the sides are straighter.

The gold embellishment on the front of this one is part of a DT ornament.

12.12.12 projects Stars 096The silver embellishment on this one is the other half of the gold one above.  And actually the tiny silver flower on the first crown came from that same single ornament too!  I just broke it apart to get flat pieces to use on my crowns!
