10 minute diy: How to Make a Feather Barrette


*Nirbhau Nirvair*

Here’s what you need to make your own: all purpose craft glue ; feathers; silver tone french barrette hair clips- you can pick these up at any craft store or on amazon

Here’s how you make it: 1. Apply a very thin bead of glue down the length of the top of the metal barrette clip. If you accidentally apply too much glue, use a q-tip to remove the excess.

2. Choose your sturdiest, thickest feather. And use that for your base feather. Apply the feather to the top of the barrette and use the pressure of your fingers to press the feather down until the glue holds on its own.

3. Wait for it to dry and then apply your second feather, working out from the center.
Repeat step four with additional feather until you’ve achieved your desired look.
Pro tip:
If any area looks a little sloppy once finished, apply one small feather with glue on top of the messy area to cover it up.

5. Wait for everything to dry completely. And you have yourself a brand new feathered barrette. Great for the gifting season as well. Here’s what the finished product looks like…
