‘Tis the season to be EXTRA! Holiday parties are the perfect excuse to bring out the full glitz and glamor, and personally, my first choice for going over-the-top is a dramatic headpiece. I’ve gotten fairly accustomed to hair flowers and bows as part of my everyday look, but there’s something about putting something big and fabulous on your head that just says, “This is a special occasion.” Spring and summer have their flower crowns, so today I’m rounding up some amazing wintry Christmas crowns to help you look even more beautiful than the tree.
This crown from Handmade Botanicals has such stunning natural beauty. I don’t know if anyone else read American Girl books as a kid, but this one reminds me a lot of the wreath Kirsten wore for St. Lucia’s Day!
SarafinaLauren makes this crown, which has the same kind of rustic/traditional vibe. I think these would be lovely options for any activities out in the snow!
I’ll have a Blue Christmas wearing this crown from FlowersLovers! There are actually a bunch of different options for berry colors, so if you’ve got mad coordination game, you can probably find one that will match your Christmas look.
“But Penny,” you say, “I thought this post was about being EXTRA for Christmas, and all of those crowns are so subtle and understated.” Well friend, you’re a woman after my own heart, and luckily, there are plenty of people on Etsy who have our collective back: like MEELLAOfficial, who makes this stunning headpiece. With the pine tips sticking up, it’s even more like tiara!
ANTLER CROWN THO! This stunning piece from Belle Blossoms features evergreens, beautiful holiday blooms, berries, and, most importantly, some big ass antlers. If you checked out my renaissance faire post, you already know that I love antler crowns, and I absolutely love buying cute little reindeer to be part of my holiday decorating. What a perfect fusion!
If you’re looking for something a bit more on the playful side, LovelyFeltShop has these absolutely adorable little headbands with felt flowers and cute little antlers. Obviously I had to include the blush colorway since I’m all about that pink Christmas (should I do a Pink Christmas inspiration round-up? Let me know!), but there are also antler headbands with more traditional poinsettias.
Merry Kitschmas! This fabulous bottlebrush tree crown is still forthcoming from The Oblong Box Shop, but it’s already seized my heart! I do already own one Christmas headband with a bottlebrush tree on it…but this one has many bottlebrush trees, so you can see how they’re entirely different and I definitely need both, right?
Everyone wishes for silver and gold…and I’m definitely wishing for this lovely silver crown from FrenchFiasco. It’s very delicately glamorous, and if you’re a tinsel lover like myself it’s the perfect way to add some sparkle to your holiday ensemble.
We put stars on top of the tree…why not a star on top of you? This star crown from EricaElizabethDesign is too stunning to even believe. This is definitely a luxury piece with a pricetag to match, but if you need to live out your Hedy Lamarr celestial fantasy, I think you’d be hard-pressed to find something quite as captivating.
What will you be putting on your head this Christmas?
