My 6 yr old dd wanted some in her hair, but I didn't want to use the crimp beads since I didn't know how the school would act about it. Anyways, I used some of those little show clip things. Like these http://www.etsy.com/listing/80511466...facet=supplies
I kinda wove end of the feather through the different holes and the cut some of the self adhesive craft foam for the inside (top and bottom) and them lined the outside of the clip thingy with ribbon the same color as the feather. I know it might be kinda tacky, but my 6 yr old was happy with it and when she came home from school, I had to make 7 more for some of her friends. I'll try finding hers so I can take some pics of it.
