DIY Hair Feather

I love hair feathers!  I decided to make my own since it saves money and I always like to try new things.  It is actually really easy.  It took be a few attempts to get it just right, but now I have a removable hair feather that I can wear anytime.


I bought some straight peacock feathers at a sports store in the fly-tying section.  There was a package for less than $2.

Lots of feathers, huh?!  Well, I basically just hot glued the feathers to the bobby pin.  I actually bent then around the bobby pin to make a clean edge and then wrapped a couple of strands around the top to secure things.


So easy!








I am linking up here and here.
