After seeing loads of boho floral and feather headbands at Fieldview and after seeing them around shops, online etc etc- I thought i'd have a go at making my own headband out of bits and bobs i've been collecting!
Ok so this headband wont last forever but it's got an earthy/boho feel and it's so simple to make!
Old Headband, Ribbon and Leaves collected
Glue the ribbon to the headband and wrap around at the ends, then begin gluing the leaves around the headband all facing the same way and making sure all the stalks are covered by the next leaf.
A simple feather headband using an old alice band!
Begin gluing the feathers onto the alice band (in the same direction - i started with one colour first) and clipping them into place whilst the glue dries - leave a small space in between in each one.
Then begin gluing the second colour feathers in between the first colour ones, then go around and trim the ends so they don't show!
Ribbon, Buttons, Thread and Needle and any other embellishments you might have!
I marked off at the ends where i wanted the buttons to be and began to sew them, by hand, onto the ribbon.
I then did the same with the rest!
I then cut the ribbon to the length i wanted- simple!
The following images have inspired me!
