MATERIALS: Feather, wire, clear drying craft glue, thread
First I cut away as much of the center stem as I could using a razor blade (be careful!) and some heavy duty kitchen scissors. And I cut some of the top off so the feather was a little shorter than the length of my hair.
Then I poked a couple holes in the top of the feather with a sewing pin (any needle-like tool will work, I’ve even used pin backs for this). I threaded a piece of wire through the holes and then wrapped the wire around a small section of my hair near the roots. Wrap as tightly as possible and cut off any excess wire.
I took a little bit of sewing thread and stitched the braid end in place, knotting it a couple times for added security. Then I dipped the tip of my hair in glue, let it dry and I was good to go!
I divided my hair in 2 and braided my hair around the feather using the feather as the third braiding piece. I continued braiding past the feather, and then wrapped the excess hair around the base of the feather.
