DIY: Feather Hair Pin


Birds of the feather don't necessary flock together but I do have an obsession with feather accessories. And if you would like to flock with me let's do some DIY feather hair pin together! Yay! It doesn’t take long to make and as TI would say, "you can clip wherever you like, oh you can clip wherever you like".

Here are the steps:

1. The materials you need

2. Cut two strands of chain at different lengths. The length will depend on how long you want your feather accessories to drape. The lighter the chain the better as a bobby pin will be holding it up in your hair. Attach the two metal strands to a hoop, put the hoop through a bobby pin.

3. Attach the feathers to a crimp. Use a pair of scissors to shape the feather ends if you like.

4. Add some beads to the end of each chain then join it with the feather.

And you are done! The next one I want to do is replace the white feathers with peacock feathers, that would look really good, Don't you think?
