I've scheduled in a tutorial for you all, even though today is my birthday-aren't I good to you?!
During my many Pinterest browsing sessions, I'm contstantly coming across clip-in hair feathers and I've really fallen for them.
Since growing my hair out (it used to be in a short bob and it's taken FOREVER to grow!), I love finding different bits and pieces to accessories with; even better when those accessories are DIY-able!
So, I decided to take a stab at making my own version and here's how it turned out:
I didn't use actual feathers as I couldn't find any in my local craft shop.
Being the super-impatient person I am, I didn't want to wait until I found some feathers, so I decided to create petals from light broderie-anglaise fabric instead. Once I get an idea, I can't rest until I've seen it through!!
It's always nice to put my own spin on the projects I do anyway :-) I would like to try this with feathers one day though.
To create your own Boho hair feather, you will need:
-Light-weight fabric of some kind
-Length of thin leather rope
-Length of thin chain
-Medium jump/split rings
-Metal head pin (flat end)
-Round-nosed jewellery pliers
Here's the how to:
Now you have your very own Boho hair feather! How simple was that?
I can't wait to wear this on holiday-it's such a nice way to accessorise my hair. I might make another one in more neutral shades of browns and oranges.
As always, I hope you're feeling inspired after this tutorial!
