What Material to Use for this Head Piece

Hello! I need to make this head piece that goes across the forehead: http://imgur.com/a/GyBty but I'm unsure of what material to make it out of. Worbla would be too bulky and I'm drawing a blank on anything that would work well for this. If anyone has any suggestions, that would be great!

Thanks!

Well in theory you could draw out the design on paper. Then from there trace it out with hot glue to which it should be thin and flat enough.

I hope this helped.

You might- maybe- be able to find ready made jewelry findings close enough (I'm thinking three of them) that you can just spirit gum in place.

Not even joking here. Go on Ebay and search for filigree in the crafts section. You will find SO many connectors, bases, pendants, etc that are like that. You just have to scroll through and find the pieces you like.
