About a month ago I was in a stunning wedding in CT. With short hair there isn't much one can do to look dressy, but I figured out a way! TWA ( teeney weeney afros) need some love too!
The newest craze in bridal is feathers, LOTS of feathers. We had about a hundred feathers left from the bridal shower decor so I decided to make some. On Etsy clips can run upwards of 100$! Really, for feathers?! I refuse to pay that much. I whipped up some simple accessories for the whole bridal party and they were a hit!
- Peacock Feathers ( or really any feathers) Try shopping online as craft stores can be pricey.
- Fabric, silk, or ribbon
-Piece of felt
-Clip ( Bought mine in the roller section of Sally Beauty Supply )
-Headband ( picked mine up at Walmart for $5), in the photo below I just tucked the clip under the headband. No glue involved!
Begin by attaching your fabric to the top part of your clip with glue. I used remnants from our dress alterations so the fabric was the lovely price of free!
Attach felt to the top of your clip. This is where the feathers will lay.
Trim your feathers down if you like and dab on some glue. Tip: To avoid glue strings bead glue and then release the trigger. Move your hand in a circular motion until the glue pulls back from your project.
Begin laying the feathers down one by one and pat gently. Be sure to cover your clip.
Voila! You have a custom hair piece for a bridal event, birthday party or a night on the town!
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial!
