Fun flirty earrings that are super easy to make!
So I love peacock feathers, they are just super pretty! Anyway a while back I found these: http://www.etsy.com/listing/36177899/leather-peacock-feather-earrings?ref=v1_other_1 on Etsy. Super cute, but thirty dollars is more than I’m willing to spend on earrings. So I subbed the leather for felt and voila! Pretty peacock earrings for next to nothing!

I think a necklace would look so good! And it would be more durable than real peacock feathers!
