How to Make a Quick Sea Princess Headband

Hello Crafty Friends,
If you need a last minute costume accessory idea, this is the perfect addition for a little ones costume. I decorated this headband in under 30 minutes. Headbands are great because children can easily put them on themselves, they stay on better than hats, and there are endless possibilities for decorating them to coordinate with any theme.


1. Form a bow using tulle.  Pinch it in the middle and secure it with wire.  Attach it to the center of a headband. Form a smaller bow using glitter tulle and attach it to the center using a silver pipe cleaner.

2. To form a spiral, gently wrap a pipe cleaner around the length of a pencil or dowel.  Remove it and fold the pipe cleaner in half.  Repeat the process to create three faux seaweed embellishments.

3. Use a hot-glue gun to attach the faux seaweed spirals to the tulle bow.  Next, add a large seashell embellishment.  Stretch the wire seaweed spirals to create different lengths and arrange them at different angles.

4.  Adhere a large starfish embellishments inside the loops of the tulle bow so that it appears they have been caught in a fisherman's net.

5.  Add different size round Dew Drops to the outside of the tulle to create faux bubbles. Use liquid adhesive to attach some to the edge of the headband.  Lastly, adhere a scattering of Dew Drops to the backside of the tulle bow.  For the finishing touch, add large pearls on the seashell and an anchor embellishment to compliment the sea princess crown.

How to do

I started to cut my printed cardstocks and adhered them.

Then, I added some gold Modeling Paste with stencils.

When, it was dry, I adhered my vintage image and I colored it with markers.

I added some Masking tape at the bottom and stuck my Dew Drops and the title.

Here the result!

Holiday Candy Dish using Dew Drops

It's Christmas in October!!!  I made this candy dish, which doesn't have candy yet, for this weekend's project. Isn't it fun.  I love the red trucks and the Dew Drops really set things off!

Ingredient List:

Candy Jar - I used a square Jar that has a "locking" mechanism  (cost $1.00)
Artificial Snow  (Cost $0.25)
Artificial Tree    (Cost $0.50)
Fabric Flowers (Jolee's)  (Cost $1.00)
Dew Drops Red and Light Ale  - from my stash
Stickles - Christmas Red and Holly Green - from my stash
Tacky Glue - from my stash
Dimensional Tape - from my stash
Truck Ribbon  (Cost $1.00)


1.  Step one decorate the green fabric flowers with Red Dew Drops.  Use tacky glue to adhere and set aside until dry.

2.  Add a generous dollop of tacky glue to the top of the jar.  Adhere the tree.  Let dry for at least 24 hours so it is secure.

4.  Decorate the truck (I got these ornaments at the Dollar Tree) I added more glitter glue over the top of the wheel wells in Christmas Red.  I also adhered a round light Ale dew drop to the center of each tire as a hub cap.  It was adhered with the green and red mixed Holly Stickles.  Let these hubcaps dry over night.

 5.  Add the flowers and to the jar using dimensional tape.  Add the dry trucks with dimensional tape or hang from the ribbon around the neck of the jar.

6.  Add snow to the jar.  When were closer to Christmas I will add a layer of clear plastic to hold the snow in place and then add candy!

Hope you enjoyed this little Christmas Candy Dish project.  It could easily be adapted for wedding centerpieces for a rustic wedding.  Enjoy!
