Do it yourself.. Feather Hair Pieces!

Hey everyone!!! ..Get out your glue guns, put on your creative pants and lets get started!

Hair accessories can vamp up any hair due and add a personal touch to any outfit. With these creative hair pieces your sure to get fabulous compliments of which you can proudly reply "Thanks I made them myself"

Heres what you'll need:

  • Glue Gun and Glue gun refills.
  • Plain black hair pieces, I got a 12 pack from the dollar store !
  • Craft feathers, colour of your choice.
  • Sequins or bejewells, colour of your choice(try choosing colours that are gonna compliment the feathers)
  • Scissors (for various trimming)
  • Black tape (I used black electrical tape)

First start by placing your hair piece in the centre of your work area. take your sequins and lay them out in a organized line according to which they will be glued on the top part of the hair piece. Working with glue guns can be messy so try and stay organized to ensure a clean finished result. 

Continue and glue the sequins to the top of the hair piece.

Turn the hair piece over so that the back of the hair piece is facing upwards. Again, lay your craft feathers out in an organized row. You may notice the feathers have a curve to them, lay the feathers with the curve facing upwards. You initially want to glue the feathers to the hair piece with the curve of the feathers going with the curve of the head.

Continue to glue the feathers to the back of the hair piece.

Using a strip of black electrical tape, tape over the seam of feathers and glue for a clean finish.

WALA!!! all finished..see how easy that was!
Get creative and try using different combinations of sequins and feathers to go with any outfit.
These hair pieces are perfect to spice up any up-style.

Happy crafting
