Christmas is here, which means New Year's Eve is just around the corner! Feel fabulous in this Sparkling New Year's Eve Crown you can whip up with just a few inexpensive ingredients. Make this in bright colors if that's more your style, I love the glam chic of this gold and maribou combination.
You will need:
White fabric covered metal headband
White Craft Feathers
White Adhesive Backed Craft Felt
White Adhesive Backed Card Stock
Aleene's Fabric Fusion Peel and Stick Sheets
Die Cutting Machine (I used my Silhouette Cameo) or Stencil to Trace and Cut
One: I used my Silhoutte cameo and the Genuine font sized at 214.7 pt. The numbers have to be flipped backwards so the glitter can be placed on the front. Make two sets of numbers, they'll sandwich the toothpicks. Two: Cut felt to fit around front and front sides of headband. Three: I added the Peel and Stick sheets to the felt to make it extra sticky. These sheets are crazy sticky, so use non-stick scissors and take your time when placing the feathers. Four: Get your numbers glittered up and ready to roll by dipping one set into a bowl of the gold glitter.
Five: Cut the toothpicks so they have about a 1.5" bottom and fit inside of the numbers without poking out of the tops. Sandwich the toothpicks between the glittered and non-glittered numbers. Six: Add more Peel and Stick sheet to the front half of your felt. Fold felt over head band. This is tricky, so take your time and work from one side to the other. Yes, it's messy, but fret not as the feather fluff vacuums right up! Don't vacuum up your maribou trim like I did though. Derp. Seven: Add more peel and stick to the front of the felt. Eight: Press the toothpicks into the adhesive. Cut the maribou trim into two segments that fit around the front of the felt. Press these over the adhesive. That's it!
Now pour yourself a glass of bubbly and toast to a FABULOUS new year filled with sparkling possibility! You gorgeous creature, you!
