Toddler Tiara

I searched high and low for a tiara that Ana could wear for her Princess Party. I found many that were over priced or that were just too "stiff" for a one year old. 
While visiting Michaels for a new frame, I came across some foam visors... some were sparkly... and I thought... "if only I could find a tiara made out of this material..."  I held it in my hands for a moment... held it sideways, backwards then upside down.
 Then I had a BRILLIANT idea! 

 I bought a couple (they were only 67cents or so) so I could mess up a few times. 
I started by laying the visor flat against some plain white paper. I traced the visor arch.

I folded the paper in half, so that the peaks of the tiara would match on both sides. Then I cut it out.

Next I traced the peaks onto the visor itself. Then I used my "exacto" knife and cut out the peaks.

Oh... while in Michales I found some pearly stickers... I thought they would add some bling bling to the tiara. I just stuck one on each peak... hot glue wasn't necessarily needed, but I knew my daughter would try to eat the pearls off. The hot glue was extra precaution against a nibbling baby.
It took me maybe 5 minutes to do the whole thing. EASY! REALLY EASY! I am no crafty girl either!
