DIY Project: Hair Comb

So I found this amazing hair piece via The Handcrafted Wedding and fell in love.

However, at $110 there is no way I could afford this piece in my budget. Therefore I decide to investigate making my own feathery hair comb…

For starters you can pick up a set of silver plated hair combs from your local craft store or this set of six from amazon.com.

Next you need to find a pretty crystal brooch. Believe it or not I’ve found some nice ones at Goodwill. You can try any other costume jewelry type place. I also did a little search online and found these…

You’ll also need some Jewel Glue which you can pick up for around 3 bucks either online or at any craft store.

And finally a bunch of white feathers. I found these…

feel free to mix and match different types of feathers… like adding a pack of these…

Once you have all your supplies all you need to do is glue the brooch to the hair comb and let that dry. Then glue the feathers over the pin part of the brooch to hide it.

All in all, you should be able to make your own gorgeous hair comb for $30 or less.

I’m gonna try this one out myself and post my results later. And if anyone makes there own, please post as well. Thanks!
