There’s absolutely no secret to making the perfect fascinator. Any fabric that can be malleable and easy to handle with a pair of scissors, an iron, base, a needle and thread or glue can be transferred into a statement fascinator.

How To Make a DIY Ankara Fascinator

In today’s post I will be teaching you how to make an ankara fascinator in simple steps. Here’s what you will need:

  • carton as base
  • scissors
  • craft knife
  • pen/marker
  • gum stay
  • net accessory
  • fabric
  • glue

Step 1: Trim the fabric pattern, if its large enough to form a fascinator. Trim another pattern with a little bit of allowance.

Step 2: Glue the fabric pattern to the carton base and trace out the pattern with a pen/marker. Repeat this step for the gum stay and iron the gum stay to the fabric.

Step 3: Glue the fabric pattern to the base. Cover the other side of the carton base with the other fabric pattern with allowance. Glue up the excess fabric neatly.

Step 4: Attach the net accessory by gluing it to the centre of the fascinator base.
