- black paint
- paint brush
- earring findings, a little cord clamp (in the jewelry findings)
- felt (I used eco felt, which is made from recycled plastic bottles!)
Cut a rectangle from the felt. I did 1″x4.5″. then cut it lengthwise again, achieving a ‘skinny’ look. Trim the end to taper off, like a real feather. You can also cut ‘feather notches’!
Now we are gonna paint the stripes! the fashionable feathers have a chicken track like point, so I did up on one side and met it on the other, going down ward.So, after they dried, I cut a fatter purple feather,attatched the clamp, popped it on a earring hook and PRESTO! No birds harmed! You can alternately add it to a hair clip and make smaller ones and skinny long ones as well!
