DIY Peacock Feather Headpiece

This would be just perfect for a Flapper Girl Halloween Costume - a cast member from Boardwalk Empire maybe? Or perhaps Daisy from The Great Gatsby!


Peacock Feather Headpiece DIY
4-5 peacock feathers (mine were from Hobby Lobby)
1 plastic hair comb
scissors
hot glue and gun
brooch
bobby pins that match your hair color

1.)  With scissors, cut the feather stem about an inch and a half below the main bloom.
2.)  Arrange 4 (or as many as you deem necessary to fill it out) peacock feathers on top of hair clip evenly.
3)  Glue the stem of each feather to the top rim of the hair comb.
4.)  After the glue is fully dry, work the comb into your hair.
5.)  Using bobby pins, pin the brooch on top of the hair comb to help hide the plastic comb and to secure in place.**

**One of the benefits of only pinning the brooch to the comb is that you can then interchange the brooch depending on the style or look you are going for.
