feather headband

I am so happy it is a short work week - Thanksgiving week! And for me it is like a bonus vacation because our family already celebrated Thanksgiving this weekend. So, all the cooking and cleaning is out of the way, and we get a short week with 4 straight days of relaxing family time. I plan to catch up on some projects, read, sleep in, and of course spend lots of time with Sawyer and Anderson.

I was able to get a bit done last week, so I have something lovely to share with you this week. 

I was at Kohl's last week and saw a headband that I liked. I didn't take a picture of it, but I filed it away in my busy little brain as something to try. Translation: it's a wonder that I ever thought about the headband again. But I did. I even looked it up online so you can see it too (here it is). 

And here is my prettier version. Sorry Kohl's.

 I don't have a tutorial, because you don't need one. I bought a pack of skinny headbands at Target. I bought a white feather from Micheal's and trimmed it to the size I wanted. Yep, you can trim feathers. I also got the rhinestone trim at Micheal's in the jewelry section.  Hot glue the feather to the headband and then hot glue the rhinestone trim on top. 

Easy. Really. I don't mess around with difficult projects these days.

It's such a pretty wintery little accessory.

Hope you all have a great week - safe travels and Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. What a cute headband! I love the detail the rhinestones give it :)

  2. Cute. Annnd could we talk about your gorgeous hair? Love those wavy curls!

  3. Perfect! Just this Saturday I was trying on a feather headband at Claire's (yes, I'm still 12 years old) and wishing it wasn't so honking big and . . . I don't know . . . feather-y. I love the idea of feather hair accessories, but all the ones they were selling looked more like an actual bird's actual wing than pretty, subtle feather accessories. I love your take!

  4. Yours *is* prettier than Kohl's. Very nice!

  5. Hi there! I just found your blog and have spent far too much time on it! Found you through a girl with a glue gun. You are one talented chica. Great job. I love your embroidery/stitchery, whatever you call it. It's beautiful! So much of what you do is great!
