DIY Wednesday no. 2: Fall Velvet + Feather Headbands
Posted by Kate. Filed under DIY Wednesday, Do It Yourself

Snag this trend for a steal by DIYing your very own velvet and feather headbands!  These make fabulous bridesmaid gifts, and the best part is you can color coordinate as needed for the perfect wedding day accessory.  Victoria Hudgins brings in rich textures and whimsical accents for the upcoming wedding season with this fall-friendly project.

Materials needed for each headband:

*Cheap crafting headband mold (find at craft stores or dollar stores)
*1/8 yard fabric in a rich textured velvet
*A couple of whimsical feathers that coordinate with your bridal party attire. (These can be found at craft stores, thrift stores, and quite cheaply online).
*Fabric glue (or hot glue if you are careful!).
Step One: Measure the headband to the fabric and cut a line double the width of your band.

Step Two: Starting at one end carefully glue this strip around the band being sure to straighten out any gaps or bumps in the fabric along the way.  Secure with a very small glue line around the inside of the band.

To make the side bow: Cut a piece of fabric 2 inches long by 1/2 inch wide. Fold in thirds and secure along the back with glue. Cut another piece 1/4 inch wide by 1 inch long and run it down the middle of the bow front, gluing in back to create the shape. To finish the headband: Place between 1-3 feathers in a pleasing combination along the side of the band, starting about 1/3 of the way up (you may want to use a mirror to figure out what placement will work with your custom sized feathers). Once in place, use a dab of glue to secure the feathers and top with your velvet bow.  Let the band dry overnight before presenting to your wedding party.

Wrap the headbands in pretty tissue, attach a sweet “thank you” tag and watch your favorite girls walk down the aisle in a very pretty bespoke style.
