“Evil Queen” Hair Band
[Hair Accessory Tutorial]

My latest addiction is the popular fairy tale drama series “Once upon a time”. For those who know nothing about the show here is a little spoiler: fairy tales go real life! Confused? Just watch the show. I am for my part watching it every day. It is such a thrilling show with twisted stories and complicated characters. My favorite show character is the Evil Queen. Mostly because of her bombastic wardrobe and her “I don’t give a crap” attitude :). 

Inspired by the queen’s amazing costumes I designed a simple tutorial for this unique hair accessory.   You will need about 2 hours of your time and  about 10 € ($13) of your budget. I hope you like the way I designed the “Evil Queen” hair band. Have fun by creating yours!

First attach the spikes to the headband leaving about 2 cm (1″) space between each. I used 8 spikes for this project.
