DIY Duct Tape Feather Headdress

The weather in LA is sooo gorgeous right now.  Gigi and I made an impromptu feather headdress and played outside all afternoon.  I had some inspiration from this post, which involved some crazy glue to stick ribbon together.  I skipped that part and used duct tape instead and it worked great.  See instructions below. http://t.co/4aJQAbdi(…)
