How To: Make a Peacock Fascinator from Scrap Felt

All you need are a hair clip or bobby pin, felt pieces that are approximately 5″x3″, 4.5″x3″, 3.5″x3″, and 2.5″x2″, a needle and thread, and fabric glue. I wanted to make this a no-sew project, but stitching is really the best way to secure the clip onto the feather. It doesn’t require a ton of sewing skills, so let’s call this a low-sew project instead, OK?
