That’s why this gold feather headband is a great DIY project. This headband will add a bit of luxe elegance to your outfit. With a couple items, you can turn a sad old headband into a fun and fabulous fall accessory. Let’s get started:
- 1 package of crafting feathers
- An old headband
- A spool of gold ribbon
- Hot Glue gun
- 1 Can of Gold Spray Paint
1. Take the headband and wrap it with the gold ribbon. Use small dabs of glue to secure the ribbon to the headband, covering the band completely. Once it’s covered, set the band aside. Prepare to spray paint the feathers.
2. If you can’t find a bag of all-white feathers, selected the lightest colored feathers from the package. Lay the feathers out on a safe space – preferably outside.
3. You’ll only need a couple coats of spray paint to get the feathers a shiny gold color. Spray the front and the back equally. Allow each coat to dry 15-20 minutes before spraying again.
4. Once the feathers are coated the way you like, it’s time to attach them to your ribbon-covered headband. Using the hot-glue gun, add a few dabs of glue on the feather. Attach it to the band
5. Overlap each feather until the band is covered. This should take no more than ten feathers. Criss-crossing the feathers will give the band a more crown-like look.
This project takes about 65 minutes to create. When you are finished you’ll be left with a fly head accessory that looks quite regal. Wear your new headband to your next fall festival or holiday happening.
