Let’s first take a look at the result:
What you need:
Here’s my „bling“.
So that’s 10 grams (0.35 oz.) of feathers. You don’t need all of them. I took approx. 20 - 25 feathers for one shoe. Search for the prettiest and sort them – you’ll need long, medium and short feathers.
Cut out a felt triangle.It’ll be later attached to the shoe like in the pic below. The numbers are important for the next steps.
Start with felt side #1. Take the longer feathers and hot glue them to felt side #1. Pay attention to how the feathers are bend – see pic.
Now you proceed to felt side #2 and attach the feathers semicircular – now the feather you take have a medium length.
Here’s an illustration how to proceed further. After the first row of feathers (purple) you put a second row on the first (pink).
After this you should see no felt any more. Please pay attention: For the second shoe everything has to be the on the opposite side!!
Now you might want to put something on the spot where the feathers of the second row meet to hide it. Just hot glue it on that spot.
You can also use the feather piece as a fascinator if you just attach a pin!
The last step is to hot glue the felt triangles to the shoes!
I am so in love with my now super fancy shoes. They look like they did cost hundreds of bucks! But wait – how much did I pay?
Very nice and creative too!
I love them they are soo beautiful!!
Great job on the feathers! I've tried my own feather accents before and they didn't turn out as nicely as yours. Next time I'll have to follow your step by step instructions to see if it helps my artwork improve. Thanks!
LOVE IT! thank you for sharing!
