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


  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

    LOVED this. especially the snacks. i’m trying to plan a vegan event in the near future (baby shower) and as someone who isn’t…it’s nice to see some pretty food options that are vegan friendly and easy. The hair feathers are super cute too :)

    • Mr Kate

      thank you! it is usually possible to do vegan options. so glad you found it helpful! xx – kate

  • Ruci Kafka

    This is so lovely! I have the same waffles from Trader Joe’s. :)

    • Mr Kate

      loooooove waffles! and TJ’s!

  • Catherine Bruno

    LOVED it! I so want to make a feather hair clip. The only problem is by the end of this week I’ll have a pixie hairstyle and I don’t know if it will work for me. But maybe sometime I’ll grow it out and make one. Also a great idea for a gift.

    • Mr Kate

      one would be cute in a pixie cut! just make it short and not too pouffy! thanks for the comment! xx – kate

  • Alexandra

    So adorable.

    • Mr Kate

      thank you! ; )

  • Kourtney Christine

    Hey Mr.Kate! Im VEGAN too! :) Thos are some amazing treats! Where did you get Diya cheese? I havent been able to find vegan cheese anywhere! i REALLY want to try the yummy toast things with the cherry tomatos!

    • Mr Kate

      I get my Daiya from Whole Foods but if your local health food store doesn’t carry it than you can ask them to order some for you. I like the ‘cheddar’ kind.

      Some of the feathers in the video are real and some are fringe tassels I made by tying a whole bunch of stings together like hemp and ribbon.

  • Kourtney Christine

    p.s are thos real feathers? if they are not real.. WHERE DID YOU GET THEM?! :)
