I set out to make a huge flamboyant Goth Goddess headdress to go with a long black dress. I watched this video to learn how to make a wire frame. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBdnr2elRKM&app=desktop

My materials were 20 gauge wire (the next thickest wire up would probably be more supportive. However, this worked fine)
Black posterboard
Duct tape
3" black fur ribbon
5 skeleton hands
Some wonderfully gothic artwork by Joseph Vargas
Dollar store purple/black rose bouquet (2)
Hot glue

Made the base, then made 5 "flower petals"
Cut out 10 gothic style front and back panels
Duct taped the backs to the back of the frame
Created my front pieces (images, gem stones, skeleton hands)
Hot glued the fronts
Cut out a top and bottom of fur and hot glued this to my frame
Glued flowers to the base to hide all the imperfections.
On back side I cut out the little sprigs with spiders and glued them to the back
I pulled apart the black leaves from the bouquet and used these to hide all the hot glue at the back


I had a necklace on here which looked cool but I hung it improperly and had to cut it off! Lesson here, use a chain that does not have to be centered.

Really like it... so creative and I love the use of the flowers to hide the glue/attachment areas because it's both practical and really pretty. :)
