Peacock Feather Headband

Pin It

My brother got married recently got married and their wedding had a peacock theme.  I made this headband for Lily to wear at the wedding.  It was super easy and only costed me a few dollars.

1 peacock feather
Black interfacing
Headband or fancy ribbon
Stick on jewels or bling
Bra strap hardware (clips and rings) found at any sewing store
Tacky Glue

First I took my feather and used Tacky Glue to glue it onto the black interfacing in the shape I wanted.  Then I let it dry and cut it out.  I cut off a lot of the feather ends, but shaped it so it was as big as it could be with no bare spots.

Once cut out, I made my headband using the fancy ribbon I bought at Joann's and the bra strap hardware (the clips and rings look like this) that I bought at the same place.  This way my headband was adjustable since the ribbon I got was not stretchy.

I used hot glue to glue the feather on the headband, and the bling onto the feather base.

I got a ton of compliments on Lily's headband every time she wore it.  It's super cute, easy to make, and didn't cost a lot!
