Is there anyone on this earth who does not need a lace tiara? I submit to you, no.
I mean, sure, they look cuter on kids, but grown-ass people need crowns sometimes too, yo.
So I decided to make one. For me. So there.
This, of course, required a lot more lace than a cute little kid crown…
The instructions also said to “blot” up the extra, but when I blotted it, there wasn’t much left…
And after a few hours, it was not stiff at all. “I will make you stiff!” cried I (that’s what she said), and so I repeated the ModPodge and also sprayed it with spray starch. (Because, really, I never use it for ironing so I might as well use it for something.)
I had also carefully followed the directions and put the whole thing on wax paper, but it turns out that glue (which is basically what ModPodge is) sticks to wax paper. Whodathunk?
Luckily, I was able to carefully peel it off the lace.
I left it to further stiffen overnight, which it did not do, but I was in a hurry and figured it was good enough. Also, I didn’t feel like hauling out my glue gun, so stapler to the rescue.
And maybe this whole tiara thing wasn’t my greatest idea…
But hell if I’m not gonna let my freak flag fly. Honey, I look good in a crown.
