Hot Trend and DIY Project

*shaking my head* I can't believe I haven't seen this coming! Feather earrings are the hottest thing for this summer. Feather earrings give a person a Boho Chic style or even a rocker edge, like Ke$ha. The ones on the left can be found at Urban Outfitters for around $15.00. The ones below can be found at WetSeal and Forever21 for less than $10.00.


Those fabulous accessories can be dressed with a cute maxi dress, sundress, your fave skinnies, or studs. Though I am not the one to follow trends (I make them), I prefer something a little more ReneA. That's why I'm going to show you how to make your own fab feather earrings!

What you'll need:
  1. Feathers (prints in so many colors are a do!)
  2. Earring hooks
  3. Hot glue (or super glue)
  4. Ribbon
  5. Scissors
Step 1:
First, take your feathers and lay them on your ribbon. Using your glue gun, glue each feather onto the ribbon. Wait for the glue to dry to continue.
Step 2:
Next, wrap the ribbon around the feathers until the tops are completely covered with ribbon. (Cut off excess if you need to.) Glue the end down.
Step 3:
Take a small strip of ribbon and wrap one end around the end of the earring hook (you can use a jump ring if you want). Glue the end down.
Step 4:
Now you have a beautiful earring. Do the same steps with the second earring.

Take a step further:
You can glue gems onto the earrings to hide the wrapped ends, if you would like.
