Following the Neon Week on this blog, today I have a DIY for you. I will show you how to make these cute neon feather earrings. The feathers will be painted in neon using the Pebeo fabric pen,
making those earrings even more original. While I'm writing these words, one idea comes to my mind, and I'm telling myself that I probably could have called this week "the feathers week" instead
of "Neon Week" ! Three days ago I was talking about the neon feathers on my doodled Starbucks cup and today I'm still talking about feathers...sorry mates !
This DIY project will take you about 30 to 40 minutes and you will need a bit of supplies.
- 6 white feathers : you will need 3 pairs of different sizes - 2 small, 2 medium and 2 big feathers
- Neon fabric paint (I used the Pebeo Setaskrib pens)
- 1 bulk chain
- 2 flat cord ends
- 2 earrings
- 2 small split rings
- 1 wire cutter
- 1 flat nose plier
- 1 sheet of paper
First of all, place the feathers on a sheet of paper. Color the ends of each feather with the neon fabric pens. Intersperse colors for best results. I used three colors for my feathers : pink, green and yellow. The orange color that you can see is just a mix between the pink and the
yellow, which I didn't want at the beginning but finally I found it cute ! The paint dries very fast, you don't need to wait before next step.
Gather 3 feathers and attach them with a flat cord end. Place the feathers per size order, the biggest on the bottom, then the medium one and finally the small feather on top. Then close the flat cord end with a flat nose plier on the back of the feathers, this way you won't see it once the earring is in place.
Cut 2 pieces of bulk chain, around 7,5 cm long. For this you will need a wire cutter, and be careful ! Protect your eyes. Then with a small split ring, attach the feathers to the bulk chain.
Finally, open the split ring on the crochet earring and attach it on the bulk chain.
Your feather earring is ready ! Repeat the process to make the second earring.
