DIY Feathered Headband

Hi lovelies!  It has been a crazy busy couple of days. I spent all last week in Lubbock for training. By day 3 of waking up at 5:30, I was a zombie. On the final day we caught bad weather and had to come home early.

Along with training, our Bluprint class was preparing for our annual Bluprint banquet. This banquet is put together to fellowship, celebrate the past year and of course to celebrate the birth of Christ.

This years theme was the 1920s Gatsby.  The first thing I think of when I hear the 1920’s is prohibition and flapper dresses. I’m not going to lie, the first thing I said was, “ain’t no one putting this fluffy girl in a flapper dress!” Lol.

I decided to dress up in a black sparkly shirt, some black palazzo pants and gold and red accented jewelry. I still felt like something was missing though. I finally decided I needed some feathers in my life!

I decided to make this feathered headband to give my outfit that 1920’s pop!

(Yes I used my son as a model) 🙂

I got so many compliments on it! It was about 13 bucks to make with a lot of left over material. So I thought I would share how I made it. These are the supplies you need:

1 yard of black sequined elastic, a flower of your choice, black feathers, red feathers and a specialty feather, piece of black felt, scissors and hot glue gun. I bought all my supplies at Hobby Lobby.

I started by cutting a PERFECT circle the size of the back of the flower out of the felt.

Make sure it doesn’t exceed the size of the flower.  (Don’t glue it just yet!)

Measure the headband around you head and then tighten it a little so that it’s not too loose. Cut where you need to cut and then glue to the circle. The circle will go on the inside of the headband so be aware of how you glue it.  So it’ll be in between your head and the headband. 😉

Then just start gluing your feathers in the order you want! 🙂 I put my biggest feathers first then just worked the rest in.

This is what it looked like just before I added the flower.

The next thing I did was add my flower. My flower and a pin like this so instead of gluing it I just pinned it through the feathers, headband and the felt. I just felt it was more secure like that.

And it eliminated the bulge of excess glue.  Once it is pinned you are done! 🙂 It literally took me 10 minutes to make this cute headband. I think you can changed around the colors and minimize the feathers and you can make a cute casual headband.
