I'd like to make this tiara to go with a gown I'll be wearing.

I have no idea how to go about it. Any advice? I'd like it to be as accurate as possible.

Start by making the base and framework that holds up the spikes.

Then make those and attach.

You could take many approaches to this - from making it all paper or foam and painted to using pre-made beads / jewels, to moulding and casting your own pieces, to actually making this out of metal, to using real gems, et cetera.

Really depends on your skill level and what you're good at. Lots of options to fit budgets and skillsets.
