    Feather Headband

  1. 1

    Cover the outer surface of a plastic headband with hot glue using a hot glue gun.

  2. 2

    Place a feather on the surface of the headband. Start on the right side of the headband, and lay the feather so the quill is facing down and facing the direction of your ear.

  3. 3

    Continue placing feathers on the headband until the entire surface is covered.

  4. 4

    Glue faux gemstones onto the surface of the feathers for an additional accent.

    Ribbon Headband

  1. 1

    Cover the entire outer surface of a headband with hot glue.

  2. 2

    Place the end of a ribbon on one of the ends of the headband. Wrap the ribbon around the headband until it is completely covered. Cut the ribbon end with scissors once the headband is covered.

  3. 3

    Cut eight 6-inch lengths of ribbon. Glue the ribbon to the top of the headband so it drapes down the back of your hair when you place the headband on your head.

  4. 4

    Glue faux gemstones on the top of the eight ribbons.
