The whole feather fad is kind of beyond me. I must be getting old:) Our six year old, however, is all about the feathers. So much so, that she convinced her Dad to purchase a swanky feathered hair clip for $8.00. (They split the cost.)
She was soooooo excited about her hair clip. Though she took good care of it, that clip broke not 24 hours later. Amazing Dad that he is, Paul fixed it. And it broke again. And again. Selah was devastated, times three.
I tried to find an online tutorial about how to make these, but couldn’t find one anywhere. So we figured it out. Our feathered clips are much sturdier (especially for little hands) and were super cheap. Our daughter has short hair, so we made her clips rather small. You can adjust accordingly with simple jewelry extensions.
How To Make Your Own Feather Hair Accessories:
Supplies: bag of feathers from Michaels ($1.99 for a million), hot glue, glue gun, clips (we used some she already had), EZ crimp jewelry piece package ($2 change with a coupon)
1. Choose complimentary feathers.
2. Glue the stems of the feather onto an e-z crimp piece.
3. (Optional) Add jewelry extensions as necessary.
4. Glue or attach extender to the clip.
5. Wear proudly:).
***As a side note, we had a great mother daughter bonding time making these. So no matter how silly I think they are/look… I would have to say that it was very well worth it.***
