I gladly accepted New York Design Shop’s Create Couture DIY Blogger Challenge who then sent me & 9 other DIYers a box of goodies to get creative with and this is one of mine.

* about 20″ of feather fringe {depending on ankle size}
* satin ribbon
* needle & thread

* wearing the shoes you want to accessorize, use the feather fringe to measure your ankles

* snip accordingly

* make sure the feathers curve down not out and up

loveMaegan-Feather DIYs-6

* cut 4 ribbons about 20″ long each & singe the ends to prevent fraying

loveMaegan-Feather DIYs-7

* fold ribbons over ends of feather fringe & hand-stitch securing ribbon & feathers in place

* wrap ribbons around ankles and tie in back snipping off extra length if necessary

And since the white feathers may look like little feather dusters around your ankles and would best be worn on Halloween with a French Maid costume, I recommend using the black feather fringe and wearing them over your favorite black booties or sandals with tights for Fall.

* layer rhinestone necklaces around the top & wear one or both around your neck

* if they’re a little too over the top glam for you, they would be perfect as part of your Lady GaGa Halloween costume

* also may be worn around your head, waist or upper arms, tied onto your bag, wrapped around a wide-brimmed hat, or around your pet 😉

    This is Sooooo beautiful!!! I especially LOVE it as a collar, with rhinestone necklaces! As I get my time in order, this will be a “must make”.
    I found a site that makes “Feather Gauntlets”:
    They are so beautiful; I’d love to make a design of my own! I used Google: “Sewing Feathers onto material” and found your creation.
    I think making your feather collar AND a matching set of “feathered Gauntlets would be GREAT!
    Thank you so for your article.
