DIY: Native American Headdress

 I am not one for spending a lot, if any money on Halloween costumes.  I usually go through my wardrobe and figure out what I can put together.  This year I concocted a Native American get up using the contents of my closet with the exception of the headdress.  For this I took the DIY approach.

You can use whatever materials you would like, but these are what I used:

- Assorted colored feathers
- A strip of suede
- 7/8" black grossgrain ribbon
- turquoise beads
- gold glitter puff paint
- glue gun
Take the strip of suede, fold in half and make small snips about 1/2" away from each end.
 Loop through enough ribbon to be able to secure the band around your head.
 Decide where you want to place the feathers.
 Hot glue to the back of the suede.
I hot glued a peacock feather and turquoise beads to the front.
 I filled the bead holes with some glittery gold puff paint.
Ta da!  The end product.  I will show you pictures of how it looked on next week ; )
