how to make hair feather clips

Friday 11 May 12 21:17
Hey, today I'm going to show you how to make feather hair clips, which look like this:   
Things you will need:
Hair pin/clip, beads (wooden, if possible, with a big hole to loop the string in), suede cord, scissors, craft glue, and some cool patterned natural coloured feathers.
Step one:
Cut a piece of your suede cord, measuring it to your hair length. Cut it a bit longer than you want because some of the top part will dissapear into your hair.
Step two:
Thread your cord through the clip like the first picture. Then fold it around the clip and glue the two sides, like the second picture. The craft glue should be strong enough to hold it. Wait for it to dry before you move onto the next step.
Step three:
Thread the beads onto the cord and place them where you would like them to be on the cord. Remember where they go (you can mark this with pen, if you want) and put a small spot of glue on the place where the bead goes. Then press one side of the bead to the glue, leaving a small gap on the opposite side. Repeat this with your other beads.
Step four:
Lastly, you can add feathers. If you have quite small feathers then you can glue a clump together to make them look bigger. Put a small spot of glue on the end of the feather and place it into the gap that was left in the bead. Repeat with each of the other beads, arranging them in any way you like.
And then you're finished! Hope they all turn out great for you. They are super stylish right now and go great with any hair colour.
