Leather Feather Headband | DIY

 A little DIY for you, my favorite readers.. xx
Supplies: Leather, embroidery thread, elastic headband.
Pantry Supplies: Needle, scissors, heavy duty glue (I used a heavy fabric glue).
Begin by cutting the leather into a small rectangle, roughly the size of the feather/ or leaf you want. Fold it in half, round the bottom and make the top a point. It should end up looking like an almond shape. Then, cut small, symmetrical slits on the sides. Round the bottom of each slit, making a slight gap. Repeat this process until you've cut out enough leaves for your headband. Then, sew stitching down the middle. I only did this step to two out of five pieces to give it a dose of character. Place them into the form you desire for your headband. To attach them to the band, stitch the base of each piece so that the thread will be hidden once they overlap. Top it off with a bit of glue on the tips so that they don't curl. Let it dry overnight and you've got yourself a headband all your own.
 A little heart to heart.. thank you all kindly for the support thus far. Writing Sincerely, Kinsey has become such a joy in my life.

  5. Oh this is perfect especially for my hair, they are so flaffy and curly and hair accessories almost tame them a little bit! ;)

  13. What an adorable DIY! I'm not sure if this would look as good in my short hair, but it would make a really great gift.

    p.s. I made your bird nest necklace a few weekends ago and have received a lot of compliments on it! So thanks for that! :)
