For almost two years, I have wanted an African Juju hat! They look so cool in an entryway, above a bed or on your mantel. They actually symbolize prosperity and are said to have been worn by dancers during big ceremonies. That is so cool! I love them, but they are SO expensive! I even thought about making my own using feather trim, but that was still too expensive for me because I would still need 10-12 yards. I decided that I wanted to try and figure out a way to make it for under $20. Here’s how I was able to get a similar look for a much lower price:
All I did was cut cardboard in a circle like this:
So I decided to try again:
Here’s how it turned out:
That is how I got the look of an African Juju hat, and made a feather medallion for less than $20! Would you want to make one? I think a bright colored one for a little girl’s room would be fun, or to just have year round above your fireplace.
If you have any questions or feel overwhelmed with a project like this, I’m happy to help in any way possible!
Love you all!
