DIY Roundup 5

In DIY, Links of the Week on September 24, 2010 by Naoko Takano

Whew!  What a crazy week.  I haven’t had much time to DIY anything, since Monday I was getting packed to go to the airport, Tuesday I was in Burbank, CA, Wednesday I had my third interview with a company I’ve been applying to for a job, and Thursday…oh wait, Thursday’s TODAY!

Well, that means another DIY Roundup (5)!  Here are 2 pieces that I managed to make this week. From the September 2010 issue of Lucky Magazine [I know – you’re like “Lucky AGAIN??!” sorry, I just can’t help myself;-)], I spotted these A.V. Max feather bracelets on the model in a photo (circled below), and was promptly in love.  “Well, I don’t have any feather bracelets!” I said, and then promptly sat down to make some.

For my version I used a pack of multi-colored quill feathers (not the shorter pheasant feathers like the above photo) from Michael’s and two oxidized bangles from their semi-new “Industrial Chic” line (just removing the decorative jumprings on them first).  Some Loctite Vinyl, Fabric and Plastic glue and a couple clothespins later (and about 20 minutes’ drying time per glue application) I had two pretty, feathered bangles – one in black, and one in white – perfect to match with any outfit!

So now you get to share your own DIY’s!  If you have a DIY project or tutorial, please feel free to link below!  (However you can only link YOUR OWN PROJECT.  Please do not link others’ projects!)

  1. Oh I love this! I can see it working as a fun pop to my wrist full of bracelets I usually have on. This would make a really amazing headband with the same technique too – great job!
