Feather headband tutorial


My sweet peanut girl loves to wear headbands.

So when Wholeport offered to let me pick a few things from their shop, I immediately thought that I wanted to try to make my own feather headband for my daughter.



I found this feather in the shop


and I found this headband at the Dollar Store.
My daughter is a little picky about the headbands, which is why we went with this fabric covered one instead of the 3 pack that was WAY cheaper!

I ripped off the purple flower so we could start from scratch.


Here are the items that I used for her headband:

headband {from the dollar store}
2 feathers {one from JoAnn's, the other from wholeport}
 a large rectangle of black felt
glue gun


I started by gluing the large feather on to the headband and pressing it firmly in place.


I wanted to add some dimension, so I found a complimentary feather and glued that one down on top of the base layer feather.


To hold everything in place, I took the black piece of felt and glued that behind the feather, pinning the headband inside.


The whole thing took me less than 5 minutes to make and I think it's adorable!
The first day she wore it she got so many compliments!


I sometimes feel limited with the craft store selection around my house, but knowing that I can buy so many great items from wholeport, I am not feeling quite so limited any more.
And they have great prices!
Thank you wholeport for sending me some things to play with.
It was fun!
