Feathers In Her Hair – DIY Vintage-Inspired Headbands

Every time we go to the craft store, Lucia finds feathers, adorns them around her face, looks at me seriously and says “Mama, I need feathers in my hair.”  So when a bunch recently appeared in a gift from a sweet neighbor, I instantly knew that they would be put to good use (AKA more head-gear).

I made a simple headband that literally took all of five minutes. Simply cut, arrange, glue gun and dry.

And voila, vintage-inspired old school glamor:

It turned out to be a playful little prop, and according to my Paloma – it’s her new Dove costume.

Check out my other handmade headbands and crowns under the label “head-gear”.
