my feather headbands

December 4, 2008

I was bummed I wasn’t there to make the feather headbands with Jilly and Maureen.   Today I went to Hobby Lobby and was in pursuit of feathers!  I found the feather section and they had bags and bags of feathers!  I really liked the polka dot pheasant feathers.  Then i saw a feather pad (it has a piece of felt that the feathers are already attached to it.  So i began my solo project.

Here are my supplies: from top left

bag of feathers, feather pad, glue gun, assortment of headbands and a piece of felt.


The first one i made was the feather wide headband…I attached multiple feathers directly to the headband.


The next one, i took the polka dot feathers and attached them to the piece of felt…dsc03951

Then attached the pad to the headband.


Then the last one, I used the premade feather pad and just attached it to the headband…


I like how they all turned out.  I would like to experiment with other feathers.


Feather Fetish

November 26, 2008

I really got into the last season of Project Runway. I couldn’t help but notice all the different ways that Kenley wore feathers in her hair. While she wasn’t necessarily my favorite contestant on the show, I thought she really pulled it off.


Maureen and I got together last weekend and made some feather headbands of our own. We pulled out the glue gun and whipped up a pitcher of margaritas. We followed this tutorial from Craftstylish.

The first try was a dud…

We got it on the second try…

This was not hard at all.
