Feather headbands

The Trash to Treasure Fair is this upcoming weekend and I am making a few final goodies to bring with me. I had a few feathers left over from my pin and barrette project, so I decided to make feather headbands. They turned out really well and I’m pretty excited about them. They will be a big seller for sure — too bad I only had supplies to make four!

To start out, I grabbed a headband I had sitting around in my craft room, some felt and some cardboard. I trimmed the cardboard and felt down to the same size.

To start, I glued my cardboard onto the headband, holding it at the ends so the hot glue would dry and the cardboard would hold its rounded shape.

When the cardboard was set in place, I hot glued the felt onto to opposite side (the side that touches your hair).

With everything dry and ready to go, I trimmed any excess cardboard and felt. Then, I added the feathers (the best part, duh!). To add the feathers, I put lots of hot glue onto the cardboard and added feathers in rows. I started at the top part of the headband and worked my way down.

Then, I added buttons!

Tah dahhhhh! So pretty!

Here the others I made:
