i really hope you're enjoying party week and not thoroughly sick of me hogging your google reader!
if you follow me on twitter, you will have seen a sneak peek of today's dee.i.y... i really love how it turned out. i hope you do too~
::draw up a template of your feather and trace the outline on to your leather (i used these boots. yum!). i made one feather slightly smaller than the other::
::using scissors cut around the traced lines and using a craft knife cut a thin line down the middle of your feather::
::cut a small slit at the top of your feather and insert your long piece of leather. tie a knot on both sides of the feather to secure it. repeat on the other side (so you should have a feather on either end of a length of thin leather)::
::then wear, as a necklace::
::or a belt::
(the hand on my hip is hiding my 'muffin tops'! mmhmm, tricks of the trade.../wink)
pretty cute preg belly decor, no?
i'll be back later with another 'how-to' from an adorable guest poster, that includes a VIDEO!! so excited (you should be too!)
