how to make feather headbands
Here's what you need:
-denim strips- cut up your old jeans
leather cord- hobby lobby, michaels, your local craft store
-feathers- craft store, online, or off vintage hats at thrift stores. i like using different types of feathers.
-fabric scissors- fabric store
-hot glue gun- hobby lobby, michaels, your local craft store
glue feathers on  bigger denim strip
step 1: cut strips of denim. you need one thick strip. and one thinner strip.
step 2: glue feathers one by one on the thicker strip.
tip: before you apply glue arrange the feathers on the strip (just so you can see what it will look like)

step 3: measure leather cord around your head to see how much you will need to cut. your safe if you wrap the cord around your head twice and cut.
step 4: glue leather cord to denim strip with feathers. (see above photo)
glue thin strip over leather
step 5: glue thinner strip over the leather cord for more support and also so the leather doesn't rub your head raw.

also a great book mark
BTW this makes the perfect book mark when you are not wearing it:)
...it also keeps the feathers pressed nicely.

You don't have to wear your feather head band the way I wear it, this is just my favorite way, especially on a day when i don't have time to fix my hair. i just slap it on and instantly feel more put together.

See how it creates that little bump in the back of my head? I LOVE THAT!
