Instructions:
Step 1: Trim down feathers to desired length and shape.

Step 2: Gently glue the feathers to the clip, slightly fanned away from each other.

Step 3: Cut a few circles of your scrap fabric, varying from large to small. The largest for this project was approx. 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Imperfection in size and shape is okay!

Step 4: Hold the edges of the fabric circles near the flame of a lighter, to slightly melt them. It should give them a curled finished edge.

Step 5: Stack the circles on top of each other, largest on bottom and gradually smaller toward the top. Sew in the center with clear thread, so they form a flower. Sew your beads in the center of the flower.

Step 6: Glue the flower on the remaining visible portion of your hair clip, hiding the clip and the bottom of the feathers.

Step 7: Give to your bridesmaids as a gift or as an accessory to wear as she walks down the aisle!

    These are so adorable! I have been looking for a guide to make my bridesmaids something like this. I plan to use headbands and a small clear rubber band on the snap clips so that the girls can use them either way. The peacock feathers are so luxe looking. I can’t wait to make them.

    of course like your web-site but you have to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very troublesome to tell the reality nevertheless I’ll definitely come back again.
