As summers rolls to an end, we hope you are spending plenty of time out enjoying the beautiful weather. Whether you’re rocking out at an outdoor concert or strolling through a festival or street market, today’s DIY Feather Ear Cuff project will add the right amount of  flare to your look. With these powerful natural feathers, the cuff is earthy, but still dramatic. Let’s get started!

 

Feather Materials 

Feather Green Circle  Ear Cuff Pattern (Download Here)

Feather Green Circle  Metal Ear Cuff Finding (we found ours HERE)

Feather Green Circle   Feathers (some good options would be PHEASANT, ROOSTER, and DUCK)

Feather Green Circle  Fabric Glue 

Feather Green Circle  Felt 

Feather Green Circle  Hot Glue 

Feather Directions 

Step 1.  Print out the ear cuff pattern and cut it out from felt. Pick a felt color that will match your chosen feathers. On this cuff we have used a variety of natural-colored feathers. You can find links to the feathers we used in the Products Used section below. Any type or color of feather will work.

Step 2. Begin to arrange the feathers along the edge of the felt piece. Leave about an inch of felt at the bottom for securing onto the metal finding. You could mark a line onto the felt to remind yourself or simply eyeball it.

Step 3. Once your cuff is fully feathered, it can be attached to the metal finding. Wrap the excess felt around the finding and up and over to the feather bottoms. Hot glue the felt into place.
