DIY Dolce & Gabbana Tiara


by Honestly…WTF

You will need:

  • a black velvet headband
  • 15 – 20 assorted ceramic roses (or search “ceramic roses” on Etsy or eBay)
  • 8 – 10 assorted faux pearls(last seen here)
  • 40 – 50 assorted pre-set rhinestones(last seen here)
  • a disposable container or popsicle stick
  • a handful of toothpicks
  • E6000 glue or Hot Glue 

How to Make a Dolce & Gabbana Tiara

  1. Squeezing a small amount of E6000 into a disposable container or onto a wooden popsicle stick. I like to use a small amount at a time, as the glue tends to try quickly. Using the tip of a toothpick, apply a dollop of glue onto the back of the largest ceramic rose. 
  2. Press the ceramic bead in the center of the headband. Hold in place, for about a minute, until the glue sets. It’s best to start in the center with the largest ceramic flowers and rhinestones, and then gradually add smaller adornments down the middle of the headband. 
  3. Continue adding beads and rhinestones along the middle. Then, add pearls and ceramic beads to the outer rows starting with larger pieces in the center. 
  4. Create a pattern, alternating flowers and pearls. 
  5. Continue gluing pieces to the headband . . . 
  6. Have fun with the pattern – it doesn’t have to be symmetrical. There is no right or wrong way to do this! 
  7. Glue some of the extra ceramic flowers onto brass hardware to make a pair of earrings! 
  8. Crowned!
