This Feather Hair Pin DIY is a truly simple DIY project and a great way to add, on trend sparkle and embellishment to your hair for fall.
LET’S MAKE HAIR PINS >
Supplies to make your Feather Hair Pin DIY:
- 2 Bobbi pins
- Feathers â€“ You can buy these as a trim by the inch or buy individual feathers
- Rhinestones â€“ I used pieces left over from this post and this one.
- Glue â€“ I used Bond 527 and Aleenes Jewelry & Metal glue
- Needle & thread
My illustration inspiration.
Take your feathers and separate them for each hair pin. My feathers were small so I used about 6 for each pin.
Cut the shaft of each feather leaving at least a half inch to attach to the bobbi pin.
Group your feathers together and tie them with your thread, wrapping the thread around the shafts of the feathers a few times.
Using your glue, place a small amount (about Â¾ of an inch or so) on your bobbi pin near the folded closed end and attach your feathers.
Once the glue is starting to hold, using your needle and thread, wrap your thread around both your feathers and one side of your bobbi pin.
This will help to keep your feathers attached.
Using your rhinestones and your Aleenes jewelry & metal glue, place a small amount of your glue on the top of your feathers and attach your rhinestones.
Let your glue dry.
As promised in last Fridays post #1 Make or embellish something with feathers, so now I can cross that off my list. Although I may make another project with them, I just love the way they look.
This is a really simple DIY project. These feather hair pins look really great with a slightly messy up do or even with your hair down.
As Ive mentioned before, I love using leftover supplies from previous projects to make new ones. You can see these rhinestones in previous DIY projects here and here. If you havent made any of these, now is a great time to make all 3 and know that you wont waste anything!
Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
These look so pretty in your blonde hair. Love your artwork too, you should frame it.
Love your website I tried alot of your stuff and you gave me ideas for my own website
can I use a glue gun instead of metal glue?
thank you and I love your creativity and ideas :)
A glue gun would probably work just fine. You just don’t want to use too much glue as a they can get kind of globby.
