Bird of paradise headband

I haven't had a project to work on lately. The only thing I've made recently didn't even feel like a project. I attended an Island of Dr. Moreau themed event and wanted a fun hair fascinator to wear with my tropical dress that I made. I started with these supplies:

and ended up only using the bird of paradise, some floral tape, and a green headband. It was almost too easy but I got a lot of compliments on it!

I know I'll use some of those supplies at some point, especially the feathers.

Special bonus shot of the avant garde eye makeup my friend Alicia did for me:
So, I'm not sure what my next project will be. I have some great fabric - pink with pastel geometric triangles and shapes on it. Very 80s. Maybe a short skirt? I'll have to find a pattern that speaks to me.
