How to Make Flower Headbands and Hair Clips With Feathers

This headband and this hair clip is so easy to make!!  With each flower, I completely took them apart and removed the centers.  With the pink headband, I took the bottom layer of petals and glued the feathers on that layer.  Then, I layed the top layer of petals on top.  I took my stretchy headband and by hand sewed both layers onto it, with two beads in the center.  It was that easy!!

With this orange flower and feather hair clip, I used a small piece of white ribbon to sew my petals, feathers, and beads onto.  Then, I cut another piece of white ribbon--about the same size as the first.  (Be sure to singe the edges on both pieces of ribbon to ensure that the ribbon won't later unravel.)  I then sewed my clip onto the second piece of ribbon.  Once that was finished, I glued both ribbons together.

You might be wondering why I sew any of it...why not just glue it all.  Well, you can do that if you want.  I like the added security that sewing AND gluing provides.

I also decided to make a pink hair clip like my headband.  Actually, my daughter decided for me to make it!  :o)  The headband was made as a birthday present to take to a birthday party she had been invited to.  Once she saw it, she had to have one, too.  


Here are a few more variations!

I love the color of the muted purple petals.
