A Little Crafty... Felt Peacock Headband

by Somer
A few months ago I bought some beautiful wool felt in colors that reminded me of the peacocks roaming our backyard when I was younger. Project after project came about from the felt, but I knew I was going to have to pay tribute to those vain little birds.

For Halloween my daughter was a can-can dancer and as I made her headpiece I got excited about feathers, they looked so cute in her hair. This headband is a little less dressy and a little more playful than real feathers.

You need: felt scraps, a headband, ribbon wide enough to cover the headband, and a glue gun.  Click "Read More" for full directions and down-loadable pattern.

Hot glue ribbon to headband, wrapping around bottom edge. 

Cut the shapes from the felt, I used a disappearing marker to trace the shapes first.  Download shape pattern here.

Stack the shapes and trim, if necessary. Glue pieces together.
Arrange on headband and carefully glue in place.

Ooh, we used to collect peacock feathers as kids...some crazy guy had a ton of them caged up in his back yard. I'm assuming it was all on the up and up, but we just loved to walk down to his place and search for feathers that had fallen on the ground!
