Another Feather Ring DIY

I love the look of the metal feather double finger rings that are quite popular right now, and I love real feathers, so I decided to try making a single feather double finger ring for myself...I was worried it would be too delicate, but I LOVE the end result!


Supplies and Materials

- Real feather
- 2 adjustable rings (or medium wire)
- Glue gun and glue sticks
- Toothpick
-Scissors
- Thin wire (optional)
- Beads (optional)

Instructions

1.  Cut your feather so that it will fit how you like across your knuckles.  (About 2.5")


2.  Trim your toothpick so that it's slightly shorter than the feather.  Attach the toothpick to the back of the feather along then center using your glue gun.


3.  Use your glue gun to attach the adjustable rings against one side of the toothpick.  Be sure to fill in any spaces around the rings with glue to keep them in place (not shown).


If you don't have adjustable rings you can make your rings by following the first step of my other feather ring instructions.   If you do this you can skip the toothpick step and glue the double rings you made directly to the back of the ring.

All Done!!


Or

go one step further and add a row of beads (on the thin wire) to the middle of the feather (shown in the first picture), or add some sequin trim to the middle (below).

So pretty - and easy! I never would have thought to use a toothpick but it's perfect for this project!
