It was a simple headband in black satin with a huge mess of black feathers on top. I snatched it up, figuring that if nothing better showed up, I could always gussy it up with a little DIY.
After searching a few more stores, that's exactly what I did!
A quick stop at the Dollarama yielded a pretty little foam birdie and a package of brightly colored butterflies. A quick 5 minutes later ( I was running a little late and didn't think to snap some PROGRESS OR BEFORE SHOTS) I had something a LOT more fun:
This little bird was such a big hit! Everyone loved pointing him out!
I intially added the bird and Cory thought that was perfect, but it felt like it was missing something and those 2 little butterflies were the perfect addition of height and color!
I was originally worried that it might look too much like just a headband but the addition of the "creatures" really made it look more like a nest atop my head.
So happy with how it turned out!
