FEATHER CROWN1Music festivals have been growing larger every year and there is no denying that these concerts have had a major impact on fashion trends. There are tons of feathers EVERYWHERE from  feather earrings, headbands, headdresses – you name it-  can be seen across the country! We found great DIY instructions via TheWonderForest.com that we wanted to share with you guys so you can look the part of a festival girl. These crafty gals used a mixture of shorter turkey, rooster and pheasant but these instructions work on any and all types of feathers. We recommend our mixed packaged feathers, rooster tails,  or even our items by the yard! Mix and match different kinds of feathers for added dimensions and textures!

Check out the directions below for a simple yet stunning feather crown!

FEATHER CROWN2Directions via TheWonderForest.com :

1. Cut strips of fabric or lace about 1 inch or thinner in width and about 30 inches long. I chose to cut up an old brown t-shirt (pull on the strips to make them roll up and stretch), an old vintage multicolored upholstery fabric, and a nice white lace. I used four strips and combines one brown strip with the white lace.

2. Starting at about 8-10 inches down, braid your strips together! You’ll want to leave those loose ends long so you can tie it together when you’re done.

3. When you reach the end, wrap one of your strips around the ends and hot glue it in place. Do this to both ends.

4. This is what it should look like after wrapping and gluing a strip around the loose ends.

5. Start hot gluing your feathers onto the back of your braid! Start with the shortest feathers and then add the taller ones on top.

6. Add a piece of fabric or felt to the backing of the feathers to finish it off. Hot glue it on.  Now you’re ready to tie it around your head and rock it!
