Lets start with the iconic Feather Headband...
I got this fabulous feather embellishment from Wholeport for $6.
They have a big variety...peacock feathers too!
I used a metal headband and some stretch lace.
Just hot glued the lace to the headband...
I fit it to my model and marked where I wanted the feathers to sit.
Then I put a strip of hot glue on the felt backing of the feathers.
Glued it on!
Simple and luxurious!
Sort of a 20's flapper feel...modernized.
She loves this!
Next is the whimsical flower and pearl headband.
I was sent this yard of chiffon flower trim from Wholeport!
I used a wide metal headband form, just like the feather headband.
I began by hot gluing the flowers around the headband.
I didn't even measure...but I used all but 1 flower on this!
2 important points:
#1. Put the glue on the headband, not the flowers themselves.
The chiffon and tulle are so thin they will not stay fluffy
if you apply glue to the flower itself.
#2. Keep the flowers attached to the tulle and fluff it up between
the rosettes like pictured. Take advantage of that extra texture.
have the honor of crafting with them.
I also shop at Wholeport, they have a huge
selection of crafty things at great prices!
Like these cheap lace collars!
