A great DIY feather boa tutorial – great for a kids party or a last minute cow boys and indians party – we did one of these when my daughter went as Pocahontas to a party.


  • 1 piece of felt (1 sheet does 2 headbands)
  • 1 pack of multi coloured feathers
  • lengths of elastic
  • 1 glue gun + glue sticks
  • 1 pair scissors


  1. Cut your felt in half
  2. fold your felt in half length wise
  3. lay elastic across the fold (elastic needs to be long enough to fit round your head)
  4. glue gun strips across both sides of the felt
  5. lay your feathers in the order you want them to sit on one side of the felt
  6. fold over the felt to seal in the elastic and feathers
  7. tie up the elastic and wear once glue is dry


The more colours and lengths of feathers the better! Unless your going as a flamingo.
