Chelsea Costa made easy hair clips out of silk and peacock feathers – don’t they look luxe?
What you’ll need:
-2 peacock feathers
-scrap of synthetic fabric
-plain metal hair clip or bobby pin
-needle and clear thread
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!
