How To Make Feather Earrings

Sometimes I see something that just catches my eye and I think about making it myself…and usually I forget about it……but now there is Pinterest and I can save a ton of ideas {I truly think if you could possibly weigh my boards they would weigh several tons} and when I can’t sleep or I need something to soothe my nerves I head on over to Pinterest and either pin a frenzy of new pins or go through my old ones. I had seen similar earrings to these and thought I would try to make a pair. They were easier than I thought they would be and I love how they turned out!

Soft and fairly thin leather scrap {think selvage ~ if you have an old leather handbag, wallet, coat, etc., save that leather for a craft like this}

1. Draw the outline of a feather on a piece of cardboard and cut out.

2. Trace pattern onto the wrong side of the leather.

3. Use small sharp scissors to make fringes.

4. Sew a straight stitch down the left of center then back up to the top of the ‘leather feather’.

5. Make a small hole at the top of the earring and run ring through this hole and then add the french wire.

6. If desired, brush a light coating of the gold paint on the bottom one-third of your earrings. *Note that once this is dry you will need to gently separate the fringes.

These would be pretty to wear in the spring and summer with a prairie skirt or jeans and a light weave ruffled-shirt and cowboy boots!

I hope you enjoy!
