Today is the day wear I show you how to make your own DIY Feather Skirt! When I love an item or a new trend, but I don’t like the price tags I DIY! Here is how you can make your own:
Materials you will need:
1. Skirt (depending on the color of your feathers. I chose black.This skirt was $10 on sale at H&M.)
2. Ostrich feather trim (I bought 10 yards for $54 on Ebay and used the extra to make a handbag. 4+ yards for a size small skirt
5+ yards for medium skirt
6+ yards for large skirt
3. Glue- Aleene’s Tacky glue works wonders and dries clear!
Step 1: glue a thin straight line for first layer of feather trim starting at bottom of skirt.Lay feather trim on skirt and trim at end of skirt. Allow feathers to hang below the trim. Do not apply so much glue that it gets everywhere.
Step 2: Add a second layer of glue 2-3 inches above the first trim. Cut trim once you reach the edge of the skirt. Repeat adding feather layers as desired until you reach the top of the skirt. Let dry for at least 30 minutes. Flip skirt over and begin same process on back of skirt.
Notes: The reason to only glue one side at a time is so skirt has time to dry and it is able to stretch on the sides.
