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!
- Large Pendant (I opted to use something from Tori Spelling’s jewelry line, but there are heaps of options)
- Ostrich Feather Hair Clip
- Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
- 1 Small Clear Elastic
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 removed the jump ring from the pendant and then hot-glued it to the little feather nest. It’s important to be sure that you’re gluing the pendant to the clip itself, and not just the feathers. You want this to be a secure hold.
(I think smaller pendants and trimmed feathers would look so darling on a flower girl. And what about coloured feathers for grad and prom?)

Her partners-in-crime, her two little girls, are often beside her when it’s time to get creative. A mug of tea, good friends, and a project (or three) are all this girl needs.
