For all who like an extravagant head-dress but felt the handiwork of the “Small Burlesque Hat” was too complicated, there is now a very light, but no less beautiful DIY tutorial with feathers (oh wonder ;-)). I have attached the headdress to a headband.
Instead, you also can try to stick it to a hair comb or a hair slide. Maybe the headdress is a little too obvious in the daytime, but it fits very nicely for the forthcoming New Year’s Eve party and ball season.
Material And Tools – For This DIY Project You Need
- 2 small felt circles (each about 3 cm in diameter)
- Different feathers (guinea fowl feathers and turkey feathers)
- A small rhinestone
- Hot glue gun or craft glue
DIY Tutorial: The Step-By-Step Craft Instructions
DIY Step 1
Coat hot glue on a felt circle.
DIY Step 2
Circularly glue the first layer of feathers on the felt.
DIY Step 3
Continue with the second color or second layer of feathers.
DIY Step 4
Now the guinea fowl feathers are following. Therefore I cut the feathers and took only the top parts.
DIY Step 5
Now glue the small rhinestone in the center of the feathers.
DIY Step 6
Put a lot of glue to the middle of the circle of the finished feather jewelry and firmly press the headband on it and just let it dry.
DIY Step 7
Finally, put some glue on the second circle of felt and fix it over the headband on the first felt circle. DONE!
TIPP: If you find some visual misplacement at the jewelry feathers, you’ll end up with scissors trimming the feathers.
