DIY LOVE: Headdresses and Hair-Pieces
You'll need a headband that's either elasticated (flapper style) or a normal headband. It need's to be good for tying things onto it and into it. Peacock's gem headband is perfecto, so I'll give you a DIY tutorial with it in mind.
Ribbon: Tie it in neat bows or stream it down your hair, ribbons are a great thing for making a look eccentric. Make sure you use a figure of eight as the tying method so it stays attached. You could even take thick pieces of ribbon and sew mini sequins along it.
Feathers: If you want the feathers to point upwards, choose short ones, but for feathers that lie flat down your hair, choose long and lustrous versions. Take a needle with thread, and sew into the calamus (or stem) from top to bottom, making sure you pass through it at least 5x. Then start to sew round the headband, making sure you keep it tight. Or, if you prefer, don't sew in tightly round so that the feathers pour down your head even further.
