The pipe cleaners (linked below) come in different metallic colors and can be made as simple or as intricate as you like. Leave them plain or add metallic beads or pom poms for an extra special touch!
Here are the steps to making them, then scroll down for some different design inspirations (with an extra special one for you, Mom, at the very bottom!)
To start off, you'll need:
gold and silver pipe cleaners
Start by making the base fitted to you or your child's head. I found that I needed two 12" pipe cleaners for the base.

Next for the hearts around the tiara: Take one pipe cleaner and make a fish shape.

Then press down in the middle with your finger to make the heart shape. You can also use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to mold the pipe cleaner around the cookie cutter then slide it off. Remember to leave some extra pipe cleaner at the bottom so you can wrap it around the base of the tiara.

Finally tie the heart onto the base using the two fish "tails" of the heart you just created..

Add as many hearts are you like around the base... and VOILA!

TIP: You can make so many other shapes with cookie cutters, such as stars!

And here are some other pretty tiara designs you can try... Add jewels and pom poms with a glue gun for some sparkle!
Or add beads to the pipe cleaners before you shape and attach them!
