Channel the Roaring '20s with This DIY Flower and Feather Barrette

Today I’m going to show you how to make this five-minute hair barrette, because sometimes you just need to wear a flower (and feather) in your hair. I have always loved the glamour and style of the 1920s. It was all about glitter and frills back then, and who doesn’t love a bit of that? So, with the “It Girl” of the ’20s in mind, I came up with this easy tutorial for how you can add a bit of bling to your outfit in five minutes.
