Supplies Needed to make a French Maid Feather Headpiece:




Supplies Needed to make a French Maid Feather Headpiece:  Black Ostrich Feather 4" Lace Headband Black Rose Black Thread Hot Glue/Gun (optional)

Step 1: Gather Lace


Cut your piece of lace into a 12 inch length. 


If your lace has even holes across the base, you can easily thread your headband through the holes to gather it.


If it doesn't, use a needle and thread to stitch the bottom edge of the lace into delicate gathers.

Step 2: Tie off Ends


Now gather the ends of the lace and tie them to the side of the headband.


If you stitched your lace to gather it instead of threading it on the headband, hot glue the gathered lace to the headband, then gather and wrap the ends as shown below.

Mentally mark the area and remove the headband. 


Then hot glue the feather in place.

Step 4: Rose Clip!


If your rose has a hair clip attachment on it, go ahead and clip it to the headpiece where the lace and feather meet. 


If there's not a clip, hot glue the rose in place on the lace.

That's it!


The feather hair piece is a great way to give the French Maid look without having to carry a feather duster around the whole night!


If I was a bit more authentic, I'd have my hair pulled up. Hair down is not how a real maid would present herself, but it's much more fun and flirty. 


Style your maid costume however you like. Add a cat ear headband, thigh high boots and rock your look!


Some French Maid costumes feature a "MOB CAP" which is probably more authentic, but not as flirty. I've got a full tutorial on making a mopcap or mob cap here, if that is the vibe you are going for.
