Fun feather headband
“Okay, I’m going to make a really cute, fun feather headband in my Bowdabra. So, I’m going to take my Bowdabra Bow Wire, fold it in half and lay it into the Bowdabra. I’m just going to tuck the ends so they stay out of my way.
Next thing I’m going to do is take this really pretty green tulle, and I’m just going to scrunch it into the Bowdabra. And this makes a great bow for a little girl, or even an adult.
For the next step, I’m just going to take this piece of boa that I cut up. We’ve got kind of a mix of colors. Then I take this really cool, Korker ribbon. You can make your own Korker ribbon, or you can be really lazy and buy some ready-made. I have a link below of where you can go to Amazon and buy the Korker already premade.
The reason I fold my Bowdabra Bow Wire in half is because I’m going to take my wire, pull it through the slipknot, push by bow down while it’s still in the Bowdabra. Then I separate the ends, pull them apart and bring it around to the back and tie a knot.
Now, I’m just going to set my Bowdabra aside and leave my bow here for just one sec. In order to add a really fun element, I’m going to take this button and I’m just going to put a little glue on there and cover it with this cute little gemstone. Then I’m going to just put a little glue on the back and go into the center of my bow, and add my little button flower/gemstone. Isn’t that cute?
Finishing your headband
And then I’m going to take my headband, and right here, where the headband seam is, I’m going to bring the Bowdabra Bow Wire, but I’m going to tie it off to the front so that you don’t have it against your head. So, just bring this here, bring it to the front and tie a knot right underneath the bow so you won’t even notice it. For the last step, I’m going to just take my scissors, clip that really close. And fluff it out. And you have this adorable fun feather headband.
