I needed something frilly and furiously pretty.  The Olympics will be held in London and making a fascinator seems like a fun way to upate your wardrobe without breaking your wallet.  This instructable uses post consumer goods,  one - 2 liter soda bottle.  In this project you will transform soda bottle into couture ribbons of gold.

This fascinator could be worn for bridal, quinceniera, or New Years Eve.

Step 1: Step One

     1 soda bottle (2 liter )
      4 rolls of gold ribbon ( 1/4"x 5 yards)
     1 roll of golden ribbon ( 1 1/2"x  3 feet)
     1 piece of paper
      1 compass
     1 button  (3/4" or 1")
      1 felt piece ( 4" square)
     1 spool of yellow thread
     5 quilting pins
     1 permanent marker
      1 utility knife
     rubbing alcohol
      4 cotton balls
      glue gun
      1 glue stick
     4 bobby pins
     drill bit about 1/16" ( for sewing needle to pass through )
     small wood block ( 3"x 3")

     Step One:
     Collect one empty soda bottle.  Cut off the top and bottom of the bottle using the label as your guide.  Cut vertically along the label seam.  You have transformed your piece of plastic cylinder into a sheet that measures about 13"x 6".

Cool! I wish we wore fascinators in America like they do in the UK. I made a bunch of <a href="http://www.diypics.com/diy-millinery-fascinators/" rel="nofollow">magnetic fascinators</a> last year that can be worn with or without a hat.
Thanks for the link. I liked your yellow one with the guinea feathers. You designs are very versatile. Kudos. :)
I think your instructables are fascinating! I got to checkout your magnetic ones. Wow! <br>In Nevada, we dress very casually, so I am saving my fascinator for New Years eve. :)
