Gwyneth Paltrow’s Hot Pink Feather Grammy Earrings: DIY!

So, I was browsing at my beloved M&J Trimming today… buying all kinds of ribbons for Cookie’s hair…

When I SPOTTED this freakin awesome hot pink feather trim:

So natch, my first instinct is: GWYNETH PALTROW GRAMMY EARRINGS DIY!!!!!

So, I took home a tiny bit of each feather trim that I liked…. hopped over to the store next door to M&J and bought these earrings for $0.25.

Ten seconds with my glue gun later, I HAD THESE:

Not the most gorgeous up top, but the whole process took less than a minute. For the ones on the left, I used about an inch of the trim and I glued the top of it into the little hole in the earring. I twisted down some of the top feathers and used a little glue to keep them in place.

For the earrings on the right, I had to strip the feathers out of the little satin binding that they came in, so that took an extra 10 seconds;) Then I made a little glue ball and attached them all together. I stuck one of those metal jewelry pins in it and then wrapped that into the earring.

I acknowledge that had I spent about 5 more minutes picking out the right supplies for this project the earrings would looke 100x better… but that part is hidden by hair anyway?

NEXT, I got my little sister to model them for us!

Dont think I wasn’t screaming ” JOHAN FACE, BABY FACE! JOHAN!!!! THINK ABOUT FRANCIOS!!!” at her the whole time, which explains why she was cracking up….

JOHAN

FRANCIOS

JOHAN FACE

HA.

And there you have it, in under a minute and less than a couple bucks you too can rock out with CEE LO in hot pink feather earrings.
