DIY Feathered Headband Tutorial

See how you can make one of these feathered headbands with my easy step by step tutorial below!



Supplies needed for this project include: an elastic band, scissors, feathers, thread, glue and preferred material (felt and leather). You may additionally include anything else you would like to add on your headband such as beads or buttons.With you scissors cut a piece of leather roughly around 12” by 1.5” depending on how long and wide you want your headband to be.Adding some more pieces of material is an option to give a more unique look to your headband. An easy option would be to cut out some triangle shapes in different sizes.The next step is the glue all of your material pieces together using either super glue or fabric glue depending which ever you have at home.  A suggestion could be to use the tip of the feather to help glue the tiny pieces of material without making a mess.If you plan on adding some buttons or beads it would be a good idea to thread them on to your headband.Next place all of your feathers in the order you want them in.  Try putting the biggest feathers in the middle and the smallest ones on the end.You are going to want to cut out a piece of felt a slightly smaller size of the original headband for backing support and to help sandwich the feathers into place.
I suggest using a glue gun for this part because feathers aren’t friendly to all types of glues.
Once everything is stuck together you my finally stitch the piece of elastic to the back of your headband. Depending on the size of your head the measurements may vary. I would prefer to use an equal length to the headband to give a comfortable stretch so that you can rock out with your headband all day and all night without having the annoyance of it being too tight.That’s about it!! Now go and try making your own feathered headband because it’s as simple as eating cake.  It will also most definitely be the coolest and most original accessory to wear all summer long! Thanks for checking out my blog and I look forward to seeing your creation too!
