Heading to the Kentucky Derby this weekend or hosting a Derby themed party and wondering what to wear? Here’s a quick and easy tutorial on how to make your own last minute fascinator!
- Gold spray paint
- Brooch or cameo
- Plastic comb (or headband)
- Hot glue gun
- Feathers (you can use any type you like to make your fascinator, I chose this straight hackle patch from M&J Trimming as it came with a small fabric underlay)
Use the gold spray paint to cover the ends of the hackle patch feather giving it a gold dip dyed effect. Once dry, use your glue gun to adhere your brooch or cameo to the tip of the feather. Allow a few minutes for the glue to dry. Flip over the feather and attach your plastic comb (or headband) to the underlay fabric using your hot glue gun or a needle and thread. Voila! You are derby party ready.
