DIY Feather Earring

I had lots (and I mean LOTS) of feathers left from the bag I bought from Michael's to make the feather headband so I might as well make some earrings.

Materials: Wire, Feather, beads (make sure they fit the feather), a hook earring

1.       Cut the wire to the length of the earring you want plus a little more so that you can coil the wire to secure. Coil the wire around the feather about  1-2cm from the end of the feather

2.       Slip the beads down the wire and onto the feather.  The number of beads is up to you.
3.       On the last bead, I secured it by pulling the wire through the bottom of the bead up. (Click on the picture, for a better idea of what it looks like)

4.       Attach the wire to the hook earring and coil the wire around itself a few times to secure.

5.       A feather earring!!
