DIY Speakeasy Costume Feather Headpiece
for a Speakeasy or Flapper Girl Halloween Costume
4-5 Peacock Feathers (mine are from Hobby Lobby)
1 plastic haircomb
hot glue and gun
1.) Cut the stem of each feather about 1.5″ below the main bloom with scissors.
2.) Then arrange the cut feathers on the hair comb.
3.) Next, glue the stem of the feather to the top of the comb.
4.) Allow the glue to dry, and then weave the comb into your hair.
5.) Using bobby pins, pin the brooch to the top of the hair comb and your hair to secure in place!
If you pin the brooch to the comb and your hair, as opposed to glueing the brooch to the comb, you will have the ability to easily change out the brooch at any time! This is a really fun DIY project you can do with your older kids. And the hairpiece goes with so many different costumes.
