We can’t all sit around and wait for an invitation to a posh British wedding to finally get the chance to sport a fascinator like
Sporty Spice, er Victoria Beckham.
When Max announced that that he wanted a bird-themed birthday party, I jumped at the opportunity to wear one of those darling mini-hats from across the pond. I made my own in less than five minutes for under five dollars. A very doable project.
fake bird (I got mine at Michaels for about $2 using a coupon)
feathers (I bought mine on amazon, but you can find them in Michaels as well. Mine were only 60¢, an add-on from my birthday present order.)
a small scrap of felt
possibly a clip or comb (My bird had one attached, so I didn’t need one.)
hot glue gun
How to make a Bird Fascinator
1. Cut a small scrap of felt into a round shape. Arrange feathers and bird artfully on it. Play with the design until you are happy, paying attention to the angle of a clip or comb.
2. Use a hot glue gun to adhere the feathers to the felt. Trim the felt so none of it shows. My bird came with a clip, so I just cut a small hole in the felt for the clip to go through. Then I glued the bird in place. If you don’t already have a clip, hand sew a comb or clip onto the back of the felt. That’s it!
