My completely re-vamped headstall!

This is my old re-vamped headstall. I couldn't be more happy with how it turned out ! I eventually want to make another one with brown/turquoise.

(Sorry if the pictures are huge, I don't know how to re-size them on here)

Thats pretty cute! How did you make it like that?

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

That's really nice looking. Can I ask what kind of glue? Also does it get stiff from the glue drying?

Thanks! I use E-6000 for everything! The glue has stiffened it up a little but I don't suspect it to be a problem. I'm going to try it on my horse tomorrow so I'll find out then.

Thanks! I plan on trying it on him tomorrow. I'm excited to see how it looks, I think the purple will really pop on him (he's a red dun).

Well guys I'm a little sad! I knew this headstall wasn't going to last years and years but I've already noticed some spots where the glue is peeling back and pulling the glitter off :( However I was fully prepared to have to do touch ups over time but I'm now wondering if E-6000 was the right choice? I've seen online people using modge podge to adhere glitter to high heel shoes so maybe that would work better...I'm not really sure though. My Fiance's Grandma used to have her own leather shop so when she comes to visit later this month I'll ask her opinion on what else I could try...I know there has to be something out there! Anywho here are a few pictures of Dunlap in his new headstall...peeling off or not, I still LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! :)
