  • How to make a feather headband. Feathered Headband - Step 1
    Step 1

    Start out with a feather pad (for this particular project, I purchased one but it's relatively easy to make your own), a sturdy headband, buttons for embellishments, and glue. You can really use almost any kind, hot, craft or super.

    Step 2

    Position the feather pad where you would like it on your headband, I recommend about an inch to two inches from the base of the headband. Run a line of glue directly onto the headband and press it to the pad.

    I set the headband under a pile of books to let it set while I worked on the buttons but this is optional if your glue is quick drying or you have the patience to hold it together.

    Step 4

    Start with a large "base" button and layer other coordinating buttons on top and around it. (For a simpler look, you can accent the headband with just one button.)

    Step 5

    Glue the button to the base of the feather pad. Tada! Finished!

    -Experiment with making your own feather pad, that way, you can get the exact look/style you desire.

    -Try lots of different colored and sized buttons!

    -Something usually overlooked on these headbands is the band itself. Try different widths, colors and textures.

It can be called a fascinator yes Happy I looked it up when I started making these and I just felt that fascinators were a bit more outrageous than what I make so I stuck with headband, haha.
