How To Make A Feather Hair Clip – Fast, Easy & Cheap!

A feather hair clip is a easy way to add a bit of color to your look, and when you make them yourself you get to decide what color feathers to use as well.

What You Need

1- Hair clip

2- Scissors

3- Feathers

4- Hot glue gun

5- Felt cloth

You can do this project either using the smaller hair clips that are about two inches long or with the longer ones that are about four inches long. What you need to do in short is attach the felt material to the hair clip and then attach the feathers to the felt material.

Step 1 – cut a piece of felt to the length of the hair clip and about as wide as half that length. So if the hair clip is 4 inches long the felt cloth should be four inches long and two inches wide.

Step 2 – Now with the hot glue gun put some glue along the length of the outside of the hair clip and attach the piece of felt you cut out to the hair clip. If you are using one of those hair clips that when they are closed there is a small amount of space you can cut a second strip of cloth and glue it across the inside of the clip for a more secure hold.

Step 3 – Using the hot glue gun attach the feathers to the felt material in whatever arrangement or design you would like.

Step 4 – Trim down the stems of the feathers.

That’s It, You’re Done!

You can also glue beads, stones or buttons on as well.
