How to Make a Swan Lake Headpiece


Swan Lake, a majestic ballet performance, involves the story of a prince who falls in love with a swan. The swan is actually a young girl who had been cursed by an evil sorcerer. The stark white tutu of the ballerina swan is enhanced with a luxurious headpiece of white feathers. The headpiece would be perfect for a ballerina of any age for a stage performance, Halloween or a ballerina-themed birthday party. White feathers can be found at craft stores

Things You'll Need

  • White acrylic headband
  • Eight 6-inch long white feathers
  • Hot glue gun
  • Antique broach
  • Attach one white feather stem to the headband, positioning the feather tip at the bottom edge of the left edge of the headband, using a small amount of glue and the hot glue gun.

  • Layer three more feathers over the first, moving toward the top of the headband, attaching the feathers with the hot glue gun.

  • Repeat, attaching the remaining feathers to the right side of the headband in the same manner.

  • Glue the antique broach to the center top of the headband, using the hot glue gun.
