30 Days of DIY: Day 12 ~ DIY Neon Feather Earrings

Feathers are everywhere!  As are neons, and colorblocking too!  How about combining all three?  Yes please!
  • Feathers
  • Squeeze crimps
  • 2 jump rings
  • 2 earring hooks
I bought this bag of neon feathers at Hobby Lobby for $1.99.  I am so excited at the trillion of possible things I can make with them, but needed something quick and easy tonight as Bella had dance and gymnastics.  I really like the combo of the green and pink feathers so I picked them out and tried to find ones with similar-ish shape.
I think these are perfect!  The plumes require a little trimming, but the rest is so similar that it will work!  Besides, I don't want them to be too perfect.  Imperfection is key for me.
Trim the tops so that they are roughly the same height.
Take a clamp and place it over the cut plumes.

Now use your pliers and squeeze it secure.  Repeat for the other.
Here's what you should now have.
Now attach a jump ring and an earring hook to each clamp's loop.
You're done!  Rock these with pretty much anything!!  I would love to see them with a bright outfit, to enhance colorblocking, or as a standout accessory among a neutral outfit.  Perfection either way!  I plan to do more fabulousness with these feathers, so subscribe on GFC if you haven't yet!
