DIY - Vintage Chic Headband

Hello lovelies! Here comes a brand new tutorial that I've created especially for you! You will learn how to make this elegant vintage-style headband, it's easier than it looks!
These are the materials you'll need: a plain elastic headband (this one is from H&M), some natural feathers (I ordered mine online from a craft shop), superglue, a decorative button and some nice ribbons.

After selecting 3-4 feathers, rip off the fluffy bottom bits and cut the feathers to make the "stem" shorter. Arrange them on the headband and glue them on one-by-one.
Take the ribbon and fold it into a bow-shape like this, glue between the layers so it stays like that. I also attached a little bit of a gold ribbon on the back of the bow, but of course you don't have to do this.
Now glue the ribbon on top of the feathers, hold it down for a while to make sure it's set.
After that it's time for the finishing touch - the button. I use the superglue to attach the button as well.
Tadaaah!

Experiment with colours, different kinds of ribbons and buttons, it's so much fun! This is another headband I made for my friend Josefine.

Ooh I've been meaning to make a pretty little feather I have floating around into a headband for a while... I love your idea of sticking a fancy button on too. (PS I have that same superglue... is it just me that's actually too weak to use it?) =) x
