Linking up with a Fabulous Link-up Party:
Hey all that are visiting! Thanks so much for stopping by! Recently I made these headbands for a dance team that I coach and I really love them, so I wanted to share a quick tutorial!
Feathers (I found them at my local craft store)
Sequin trim or trim that you want to use for your headband
Elastic – I used 1/4” black elastic and it’s perfect for helping the headband stay on your head.
Hot Glue Gun and glue sticks
Small piece of ribbon I coordinating color
Felt in coordinating color
Step 1: Cut out all of your pieces. I started by cutting out two pieces of felt, roughly about the size of what I envisioned the feather piece to end up being. I also cut the sequin trim to about 10 inches and the elastic to about 5 inches (these numbers will change based on your head size, of course).
Step 2: Position your peacock feather on one piece of felt and hot glue it down.
Step 3: Position smaller coordinating feathers around peacock feather in whatever design you wish and hot glue in place.
Step 4: Hot glue elastic to either end of sequin trim.
Step 5: Take ribbon or other finishing piece and wrap it around one of your connected elastic/sequin sides (the other will be under the felt, so don’t worry about it).
Step 6: Hot glue your other connecting end in between the two pieces of felt.
Step 7: All done!! Enjoy your new headband!
