Princess crown

When Dolce & Gabbana launched gold plated crown presented below (for $2,490 each) , IĀ decided to recreate it with a significantly lower budget.

I took lace, Mod Podge, gold paint, some string, glue gun and some crystals.

At first we went to the lace store just to find the exact lace we needed. It required to haveĀ one edge almost straight – just to keep the accessory from falling from the head. And then the second type of lace with a pyramid shape ending. Next we applied Mod Podge to entire surface. Drying takes almost 2 days, the base needs to be completely stiff, otherwise it won’t look the same from different angles. Next we formed it into a nice crown shape by hand stitching both ends together and using embroidery thread. Now to finish it off we painted it gold using spray paint for plastic surfaces. Picture at that stage are below.

And for the last step, definitely our favorite, embroidery. We applied 5 different crystals. Precisely attaching them took us about 2-3 hours. First we glued them, then (if needed) hand stitched.

Hope you enjoy!
