DIY Tiara: Make one for New Year’s Eve!

Welcoming a new year is a really big deal – so why settle for wearing a cheap paper hat at midnight?


Instead, opt for this DIY tiara where you can add in a little manifestation! Especially because these days we are all about owning our power and celebrating our strengths. Put together your own statement and glue it to your crown – and wear it proudly on December 31st.

I made this for my friend Monique, she just turned 40 and plans to whip up grand, exciting life changes for 2019. I told her about chingona magic – being brave enough to face fears, knowing they lead to a bright future. Trusting in your past as a foundation for your future.

She was game!



You could even put your word of the year on your crown and wear it proudly, or heck, even just your name!

SUPPLIES for this DIY tiara

Plastic tiara from the party store

Small letters (letter beads, letterboard, Scrabble tiles, etc)

Ribbon or yarn

Sparkle yarn


Hot glue



Wrap the tiara with the yarn or ribbon, then the sparkle yarn. Tie off on the ends. Test out the letters for proper spacing, then once you like the arrangement, hot glue them in place. Add embellishments!

Wear and enjoy!

Special thanks to my friend Monique for modeling this for us! She embodies chingona magic through and through!

  1. Wow that is some Lucy, and why does she “huevos” if it is a girl. Hmmm. Sex change? Very nice though and a drawing on your last stop sounds like a good idea. Its too bad you don’t stop at the Michael’s in Modesto, I sure would go by. Seeya and good luck on your event.

  2. Come to Miami Michaels!!! I swear the best thing about them right now is the Crafty Chica endcap.

    Plus, this place is more Chica-licious than when I was Queen of Indiana in Indiana. (I declined being the Queen of Florida because of too much competition on the drag circuit).

    Your glitter rocks, btw! My MS-brand stuff is too subtle and went to the back of the drawer.

    PS I miss you at Get Crafty. As if I am there anyway…lol Mwah!
