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.
