Plastic Bottle Tiara - closeup of the tiaraOne of my nieces wants to be a princess for Halloween, so a princess she shall be. Okay, a pennies-on-the-dollar Attosa princess. (Side note: I was named after a princess, so I think you should trust me with this craft!) I took an empty 2-liter bottle, dazzled it with glitter, and cut it to shape. Super easy, crazy cheap, and mega cute. I've added a tiara template for you to print out.


Total Time: 1 hour plus dry time

Yield: 1 tiara


  • empty 2-liter bottle
  • scissors
  • paper towel
  • tiara template
  • tape
  • white glue
  • glitter
  • piece of paper
  • Q-tip

  1. Remove the label from the bottle. Cut the top off and clean out the moisture from the inside.
  2. Plastic Bottle Tiara - wiping moisture out of cut bottle
  3. Cut the bottom off so you have a ring. Cut the ring down vertically so you have one long curved rectangle. Clean off any of the residue left over from the label.
  4. Plastic Bottle Tiara - remove bottom and cut down the side to create a rectangle and remove any label adhesive
  5. Tape the tiara printout under the piece of bottle so you can easily trace it. The bottle will want to curve back into shape, so place something heavy on one corner.
  6. Plastic Bottle Tiara - place the tiara printout under the plastic, weigh it down

  7. Begin tracing the tiara with your white glue.
  8. Plastic Bottle Tiara - trace the tiara with white glue
  9. Pour some glitter on the glue, then continue tracing more parts, covering with glitter.
  10. Plastic Bottle Tiara - add glitter as you go
  11. Shake the glitter off onto a piece of paper so you can reuse what didn't stick. Keep doing this until your glue is completely covered in glitter.
  12. Plastic Bottle Tiara - shake off excess glitter to reuse
  13. If you have other colours or types of glitter, add some dots of glue on then sprinkle those on as well. I went with bigger glitter to resemble a big gem in the middle of the tiara.
  14. Plastic Bottle Tiara - use larger glitter to create details

  15. Use a Q-tip to clean glitter out of the little window spaces for a tight look. Allow to dry for several hours.
  16. Plastic Bottle Tiara - clean off excess glitter between glue lines with a Q-tip and allow to dry
  17. Cut out the tiara as close to the glitter lines as possible. Keep the base of the bottle as big as it originally was so it can safely sit on top of your head.
  18. Plastic Bottle Tiara - cut close to the glitter lines, but keep base the same so it fits on your head
  19. Use a couple bobby pins to fasten to your hair.
  20. Plastic Bottle Tiara - use bobby pins to hold in place
  21. A super lightweight, sparkly tiara. Wear it and shine!
