Fashioning a crown out of confetti sequins is a fun way to make a party tiara that will be loved by every birthday girl. This DIY crown is always a hit at our birthday parties and the birthday girl never wants to take it off.
The combination of colorful sequins and a minimal wild wire design makes a unique party look. DIY wire crowns are super easy to make and the little touch of sequins is sure to brighten it up in the best way!
With the crazy colors and explosive sequins, the crowns remind me a bit of fireworks. A BANG of sequins! Yes, forever.
How to DIY your own wire crown
To make the confetti sequin crowns we started with basic jewelry wire and a bag of bright confetti sequins.
Make one wire circle for the base of the crown and three long sections to run over the top. Wind each top section around one side and then loop to attach it directly across. Snip any extra wire with a wire cutter
The crowns can be designed to be as tall and crazy as desired. The imperfection of the wire just adds to the spunk to your DIY crown.
Getting the sequins to stick to the wire
Once the DIY wire crown is formed, take it outside over a drop cloth and spray with glue. This spray glue is my favorite (it sticks super strong without being too thick). It’s a good idea to wear gloves while doing this so your hands don’t end up coated in glue as well.
Sprinkle on the sequins and confetti. We left a couple crowns with just colored glitter on them, but the crazy look of the sequin crowns was definitely my favorite. For the bigger pieces of sequin you can place by hand.
Styling the DIY crown
Once the sequins have been placed, spray the crowns one more time to secure it all. Allow the crowns to fully dry before using to adorn heads at the next party. It is always fun wearing crowns, so why not make it a birthday party craft project and all of the attendees get to join in the sequin fun. Or for a little less of a mess, make them in advance and give them out as party favors.
You can set up a photo booth and let all of the little princesses show off their cute diy crown projects. And to make the birthday girl stand out even more, pair the crown with a cute sparkly dress or a big tulle skirt. Either way, it’s going to be a celebration if you’re wearing this cute accessory!
