With Beads too!
Make your own feather earrings, with charm.
Gather your supplies.
- needle and thread
- hot glue gun
- sharpie pens
Gather your feathers into two groups.
Try to make them equal, because you dont want one earing way longer then the other.
Take one of the feather groups, and set them together how you want the earring to fall.
Take your yarn, and tie them together.
Don't cut your yarn yet.
Take your yarn, and wrap the top of the feather.
With your hot glue gun, glue the yarn and cut off the end.
Do the same to the other set of feathers.
Make sure they look somewhat even.
Now, gather the beads that you wish to use.
-As well, thread your needle.
string on one bead.
Take your needle, and thread it through the bead again going the other way.
This makes a loop, securing the bead to hang on the string.
You can add more beads if you wish. They just hang along with the feathers.
Take the earring loops, and with pliers, straighten out the circle part. This makes it easier to secure it to the feathers.
Hot glue the earring loop to the feathers, and tie your string of beads just below it.
Take more yarn, and wrap the top to hide the metal and the knot of the beaded strand.
Do the same thing to the other, and voila!
You have a pair of feather earrings.
