Here’s what you’ll need:
*A small kitchen trivet. (I bought mine at the dollar store.)
*Some wool or felt (enough to cover the trivet).
*Some netting (I used black tulle).
*A barrette or a similar type of hair fastener.
*Items to decorate with (I used feathers and vintage buttons).
*A glue gun and glue sticks.
Step #1. Glue a handful of batting onto your trivet then place your trivet batting side down to the wrong side of your fabric.
Step #2. Fold your fabric down and around the sides of your trivet and hot glue them down. (This will look like a mess but don’t worry, no one will see this part.)
Step #3. Hot glue your hair fastener to this bottom messy side.
Step #4. Glue your netting to the back of your headpiece. (I glued mine on so that the netting was coming forward.)
Step #5. Cut a strip of your fabric long enough to wrap around the base of your headpiece.
Now your done and ready for an afternoon out on the town. So put on that birdcage and find your wool cape. It’s time to go stop some traffic…or get a Happy Meal…either way you’ll be perfectly over dressed and loving every minute.
Ok, so maybe these aren’t true birdcages but they do have feathers and are inspired by them so don’t bust my chops when I say that this tutorial is on how to make little girl’s birdcages….please…
