Silver pipe cleaners, plastic craft beads (optional)
Make the headband. Twist two pipe cleaners together. Repeat. Hold them together parallel, and twist all four together at the top, leaving about seven inches on the bottom of each set. These bottom portions will be the headband. Round them the shape of a head, and make them smaller by twisting extra inches back up the same shaft.
Untwist the top strands beyond the headband. Form them into a pyramid by looping them over your thumb and connecting them to the layer below.
Add beads any time by threading the beads through the pipe cleaner section before you connect and twist it in place.
Build a bigger tiara by adding pipe cleaners at the base of each side, twisting them into place symmetrically.
