Learn how to make a Vintage Fascinator.

If you love fascinators and vintage fashion, follow this step by step tutorial to learn how to make a stunning head piece perfect to wear at the races or any special occasion. To complete this tutorial, you will need Pheasant feathers, a feather base, a gold cambric round fascinator base, 1 x bronze satin cord covered tiara band and 1 cabochon of your choice. For this fascinator we have used a brown agate cabochon to compliment the brown and neutral tones present in the pheasant feathers. The contrast of the gold base adds further interest to fascinator, transforming the finished design into a must have statement accessory. Experiment with different colours, feathers and cabochons to suit your desired look and don’t forget to share your final design with us via our social media channels.

Step One

Glue the feather pad over the ends of the feathers to neatly hide them.


Attach the cabochon onto the feather pad with the glue gun.


Step Four

Position the fascinator base approximately 5cm above the end of one side of the tiara band, then glue into place
