littledoe created these gorgeous feather pieces in april of last year, but i just recently stumbled upon the photos and have been waiting to craft something similar until the weather begins to warm up. and although it hasnt quite heated up yet, i had some spare time the other day, and decided to make one. besides, i'll probably never get around to it if i dont do it when im thinking about it..
1) get a thick ribbon band of your choice. you can either tie it in the back or attach elastic to the back so you can stretch it to place over your head (this is what i did)
2) elastic method: you can hotglue, but i recommend a sturdy sewing job to attach the elastic to the ribbon. the length of the ribbon depends upon the size of your head. i used somewhere between 13 to 15 inches of ribbon and 1.5 inches of elastic.
tying method: do step 3 first leaving enough space on the ends without feathers in order to tie it.
3) hotglue the feathers of your choice (these can alternate or be uniform in size) to the inside of the ribbon stopping at your bow or where the elastic begins.
4) then, hotglue a ribbon along the inside of the band so the feathers are sandwiched between. this ensures the hotglue wont pull your hair and the feathers won't come off.
send me your results for a feature on the blog! enjoy!
