Wednes-DIY: Feather Hair Clips

There’s no question, we love the feather hair clip trend.  It’s a great way to add a unique touch to a simple outfit and they are perfect accessories for summer festivals (like Outside Lands this weekend!).  I love the elegant and intricate ones I’ve been seeing around the web, and for today’s DIY project our Roosevelt field MIT, Kristina, shows you how to make your own feather hair clip! Once you get the hang of it this is something you can definitely experiment with, adding additional feathers or other elements like beads and charms.


What you need: Two feathers of your choice, jewelry chain, 3 pieces of jewelry wire and a hair clip.

(You can find fake feathers at arts and crafts stores.)


Step One: Wrap wire around both feathers, leaving a little room at the top.


Step 2: Use the remaining wire on each feather to wrap around chain in any place you want!


Step 3: Take the rest of the jewelry wire and stick through the top of the chain. Wrap that piece around the hair clip and you have yourself your very own feather hair clip!


thanks for sharing Kristina!

My hair is a little short and could not use this feather hair clip. But tell the true, the clip is very nice!

clothing: you could also use a barrette which would let the clip show and you could just make the feather strand shorter! It would look so cute!

I wear feathers that I find at the beach in my hair all of the time. I’m a fan of the big feathers verses the small ones.

For all my vegan-vegetarian friends, I know – at least in the case of the long feathers most girls are putting in their hair – the birds are farmed don’t survive past the plucking process :( Freepeople but not Freebird :(
