DIY Peacock Feather Bib Necklace

I am obsessed with Design Star on HGTV, I'm not going to lie. Even the designer's clothes and jewelry inspire me.

From Season 4:I love this peacock necklace and decided to make my own.

What you need:
  • Five or six peacock feathers
  • A piece of felt
  • Tacky glue
  • Length of leather cord (or something for the chain)
  • Jewelry clasp

Let's Get Started!

How-to Make a Peacock Feather Bib Necklace

Gather your feathers and cut them down around the "eye"

Glue the stem of the feather to a piece of felt. By doing this step it makes it easier to combine all of the individual feathers. If you don't glue them separately to a piece of felt first(in my experience) the feathers will clump up with glue.

Arrange your feathers in the pattern you would like. Remember you are going to cut it into a bib shape, so it doesn't have to be perfect. Glue each feather in place.

I cut a length of skinny leather cord, measured around my neck how long I wanted it and then glued the length of the cord on the back of the large felt piece. Covered the cord with another piece of felt to secure it in place.

Tied the ends of my leather cord to jump rings on both sides.

Voila!
I cut my necklace more in a vertical line than in a swoop shape, but you can create whatever shape you like. (I might go back and make it a little shorter!)
