Craft Project

DIY Feather/Tassle Hair Accessory (all supplies can be bought online or at your local craft store)

  • Leather or colorful twine or ribbon
  • Feathers or tassels
  • Beads
  • Hair clips (drugstore)
  • Glue gun
  • Scissors

Steps:

  1. Cut pieces of leather, twine or ribbon about the length of your hair, maybe a little longer – usually three look good together at slightly different lengths. Twine can be braided to create thicker strands.
  2. Glue the pieces to the hair clip – making sure not to glue the hair clip closed
  3. String beads at the bottom of the leather or twine pieces – secure with glue inside bead hole to keep from sliding
  4. Glue feathers or tassels at the base of some or all of the leather or twine pieces

Voila!
