Juju Hats In Interior Decorating
Juju Hat, also known as Bamileke, is a traditional ceremonial headdress of Bamileke tribes in Cameroon that became a popular wall decoration thanks to its circular shape and colorful feathers.
A modern Juju Hat interior accessory can be found in stores for around $250-$500. And you can make one yourself for around $100 or less depending on what kind of feathers you’ll use.
The principle is very simple though. You need a hard circular carcass, strung feathers, and a glue gun. You can cut out a circle of any size you want (remember the bigger the circle the more feathers you’ll need) out of a sturdy cardboard. Glue your feathers around the outward edges of the circle and keep filling in the space by outlining it with your feather strings in a circular shape.
Using rooster coque tail strung feathers you will get a beautiful flow in your Juju Hat and you can make it any color as the dyed feathers are available in all kinds of hues.
The most popular place to hang a Juju Hat is probably a wall above the bed but they are also used above fireplaces, in bathrooms, and even home offices.
