Looking for a last-minute costume idea? This cute felt feather headband from Family Sponge‘s Jen H. is a cinch to assemble.
Dress up is a daily event in our house—we have the princess dresses, the pirate swords, and the cowboy hats. I always like to throw new characters into the mix and listen as the kids improvise their new roles. This felt headband is fun to make and definitely one of my personal favorites.
Cut different colors of felt into feather shapes so your children can pick and choose which ones they want. (We cut the felt for our young kids since it was a little tricky. Older kids can definitely do this step on their own!)
My son thought his headband was really cool—especially since most dress-up items we have are for his little sister (we have collected a lot of dresses lately!). It was a nice change of pace for him to have a new addition to the dress-up box.
