A couple tips if you do want to try to DIY (in disagreement with the video): Glue gun glue is a bad idea for a headpiece, it can melt in direct sunlight and crack in cold weather, not to mention it is bulky and can snap off. The feathers she has are turkey feathers, not goose feathers–goose feathers are nicer. I would order feathers, not get them from a craft store. Also the narrator uses polyester–organza, satin, etc. are much nicer fabrics, do singe, and look better. Also, I would cut individual petals, not circles, to make up a flower. Overall, the more expensive headpieces you can buy are more expensive for a reason (materials, quality of construction, time, etc.), but it just boils down to personal preference regarding overall look and budget.
