In the 1920s, women expressed themselves boldly through political activism and personal style. The iconic flapper style involved short bob hairdos, boas, short dresses, cigarette holders and flashy headbands, celebrating the greater freedom of expression women enjoyed during the "Roaring 20s." Flapper style lives on in school musicals and college theme parties. You can complete your flapper look with an inexpensive sequinned headband.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- ½-inch-wide elastic
- Needle and thread
- Glitter or sequins
- White glue
- Feather, 2 to 5 inches long
- Hot glue
Wrap a strip of elastic around your forehead. Mark where the ends overlap and cut. Sew the ends together to make a fitted headband. To make things easier, you can purchase a plain elastic headband from a drugstore or department store.
Sew sequins all over the outside of the headband, or coat the headband with white glue and dip it in glitter to create a shiny surface.
Hot-glue the bottom end of a feather inside the elastic. Use an ostrich feather or another type of feather with soft, flowy barbs.
Wear the headband horizontally around your forehead with the feather centred in front or to the side, sticking up.
