Feathers and Bling: A Wedding Fascinator

I’m in a hair-accessory phase right now. For some reason, I can’t get enough of barrettes, bobby pins, and hair bling. And the most fabulous and epic of all hair accessories can be found at a wedding. Who doesn’t love a bit of drama in a bride’s hairstyle?

Oftentimes, when the words “wedding” or “bride” are attached to something, the price of that object can skyrocket. Creating this simple feathered fascinator is not only simple, but it’s also easy on the budget. You can create this little bit of hair glamour for under $10!

I slipped a small clear elastic over the top of the clip and the feathers, bending them back over themselves and creating a curve. This pointed the feathers all into the same direction, while also making a little “nest” for the pendant.

(I think smaller pendants and trimmed feathers would look so darling on a flower girl. And what about coloured feathers for grad and prom?)
