Mini Crowns Galore

My sister made a lot of small crowns some time ago, but never listed them! So I took matters into my own hands, and took photos and posed while wearing the crowns myself. They are quite neat, and it's cool when she adds stuff to my shop, as they're different than the things I make.
  She basically made a bunch of mini crowns/bun covers. They are easily secured using bobby pins, or for two of the crowns, she made some patching hair pins.

Autumn Mini Crown.
 This is a mini autumn-colored crown, with sparkling bronze leaves and bright shiny berries. This will fit a large bun.

Red and Gold Mini Crown.
 This is a more interesting design. My sister left the dark metal unadulterated, and adorned the design with gold bottle caps and silk covered beads. Rhinestones adorn the bottle caps. This one looks a bit Asian-inspired to me. It comes with two hair pins, which can be seen as the two swirls of metal to the right and left of the tiara.

Silver Crab Claw Crown.
 This is another very interesting design. The crown is this solid webbed piece of wire sculpture, which is covered in a rainbow string. Then the whole piece was coated in sparkling silver glitter. The rainbow can be seen in the inside of the crown. Red painted crab claws decorate the outside of the mini crown. Two glittering swirl pins come with this one, and they can be seen sticking out of either side of the top of the crown.

Harley Quinn Crown.
 This is a super cute Harley Quinn-inspired crown/jester hat. Harley is a super cool villain from Batman. This mini crown is lightweight, and is composed from wire and painted masking tape.

Mini Icicle Crown!
 This one is totally an Ice Queen crown! It is super cool, like long icicles sprouting out, and small sparkling crystals and pearls dangling from each point. It is made entirely of wire and glitter. An awesome piece!

Mini Princess Crown.
 This one is a bit of a princess crown. It's covered in sparkling purple glitter, metallic gold pipe cleaners, and it has large gold sequins dangling from each point.

Purple Mini Crown.
This crown is entirely made from wire and purple glitter. It is a series of swirls that have all been connected into a glob shape. Super fun!

Rainbow Mini Crown!
You all should know by now that I freakin' love rainbows! This crown is super cute, it's made from wire and is covered in that rainbow color-changing thread. A decorative gold ribbon loops around the tiara is a pattern. Unique and cool!

Snow Queens and Leprechauns

 I love Ice Queen and Snow Queen tiaras! It seems funny to me, but other people also love those types of tiaras. They always sell very fast whenever I put them in my shop. Well, I've got three new icy tiaras, plus two green ones.

Grand Duchess Tiara.
 This reminds me so much of the Romanov Nuptial Diadem. The shape of this tiara is definitely a bit Russian. But anyways, I am so proud of myself! I made 6 new tiaras in about 2 hours. For sure, a new record for me.

The Grand Duchess Tiara is made out of acrylic rhinestones, kind of like the style that you see on those antique chandeliers. Rhinestones also line the top of the tiara.

Frosted Crystal Tiara Headband
 This is another snowy queen tiara. A simple headband with a frosted sprig. It's simple, but dramatic, for a very cool accessory or to go with a costume.

Snow Empress Tiara.
 This is one of my more unique tiaras. It is made off of a simple tiara band, with a mini wire crown shape in the middle. Acrylic rhinestone shards dangle from the tiny crown. Snowy sprigs decorate either side of the tiara. It's simple, but it's very cool.

A Leprechaun Tiara! This could also be useful for woodland fairy themes.
 My first leprechaun tiara! Why did I not think of these before? I may have to make some more variations of these before March. Tiny glass rhinestones adorn the tiara. As an added bonus, the tiara is extremely light weight.

Peacock Aigrette Tiara.
And of course, the peacock aigrette. The original Peacock Aigrette went to my grandmother. She's at that age where she doesn't care what people think, and she wore it around Seattle's Fremont neighborhood one Saturday. Such a sweet lady. Anyways, I made the aigrette a made-to-order item, and I sold one. Yay! So I made two, to list another, and send out one. It's a little different than the original, not as tall. The feather is a bit differently colored.
