Default Re: How to cover metal/skinny headbands

I just take a thin metal headband and use E6000 to glue the feather pad down. I then glue a strip of 5/8 or 3/8 ribbon over the glued part. If I want to dress it up, I'll add a rhinestone, small flower, beads, bows, or I just sell it with the pad. I'm closing a buy for the hackle pads tomorrow but the fill list will be up until all colors reach dozens.
would u mind putting a pic up of ur feather headbands? i'm new to this and have never worked with feathers...sounds neat and pretty but i have no clue how to "picture it" in my head. thanks in advance!!!
