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….





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.
