Has anyone tried making a feather fascinator (just a hair accessory, no veil) themselves?
I’ve been attempting this for weeks, but no joy so far… I just end up frustrated with a mess of hot glue and feathers! I’m curious to see what kind of clip you used and if you have any tips on glue, etc? Also, any photos of the finished product for some inspiration would be appreciated!

Hi! I can totally sympathise! I make veils and fascinators for a bridal salon, and I wanted to make feather fascinators, but it was really hard. I ordered one on line and took it apart, and one secret is to use a tiny (maybe 3/8 inch) styrofoam ball in the middle to stick the feather ends into. In the end, I found a fabulous site on line where I order the flowers when I need them, and just sew an aligator clip onto the back of them. You can buy the clips at Sally’s or JoAnn’s. The site where I buy them is
They have simple, pretty choices for around $15, and the more elaborate ones go up from there.
