Baby New Year DIY Tiara

Inspired by Rookie's Crown of Love and a riot grrrl past, I decided to DIY my New Year's Eve tiara this year.  Last year I was lazy and went for the fiber optic retail version.

I always really liked the idea of Baby New Year existing on New Year's Eve so I decided to feature Baby New Year in my New Year's Eve tiara.  I wasn't able to successfully convince anyone to don an Old Man Time-themed top hat or a reasonable facsimile so I went it alone.

I'm sharing it here in case you, too, want a head full of kitsch for future holidays.

Baby New Year!
