You could always make them yourself! They are super easy and you get exactly what you want if you’re the one doing it 🙂 Craft stores will have everything you need.

I second diy’ing it.  After I got mine from etsy and saw it, I loved it but totally thought I could have done it for 1/5 of the price.

Im actually in the process of making feather fascinators for myself and 6 BMs, so its definitely do-able. Its been taking me a while because I’ve been designing them throughout the process and had to wait for supplies, as well as do some extra things like cut flower petals out of leather and paint them… 

Anyway you have several options, if you are good with a needle and thread, and want a quality piece that will last years, I would highly suggest a sinamay base and hand sewing feathers and other embellishments on.

You can also create your feather/flower and attach it to a felt circle and then glue/sew it to a comb or headband.

There are some fascinators available on “Save on Crafts” not sure about the quality. I bought silk leaves there that were really nice, and actaul silk not polysilk like most faux floral items. Plus people really like their other products.

Etsy also sells feather flowers and other supplies, so that you can semi-DIY. I bought feather flowers from two different vendors and they were of pretty good quality.

I also want to try my hand at making peacock feather fascinators and maybe shoe clips for my bridal party. Any suggestions for DIY directions and supplies? Like where to get feathers, the “charms”/crystal centers, etc?

@FutureMrsSitler: You should start with an inspiration photo or photos that have similar aspects of the item that you want, or even a sketch. There are a bunch of different places where you can buy supplies; once you figure out what your designs, then you can do some online research to figure out what works best for you. Most craft stores have websites, and etsy and ebay both have sellers that sell supplies. Here are my finished fascinators, if you want more specific advice, please message me!
