Leather Feather Earrings DIY

DONT FORGET ABOUT THE GIVEAWAY, A FEW POSTS BELOW! ENTER!
Here's your DIY for today. I'm pretty happy how they turned out. Feel free to ask me any questions in the comments below. (Just as a side note: I am aware that these look a lot like the ones from Rachel and Elsie's summer class, and I must confess that this is where I got the idea, but I am not taking there summer class and these instructions are completely how I would do them. But I don't take credit for the idea, just my instructions and how I would do it.) Thanks! :) Now where were we.
You will need: Leather, a feather template, earring hooks, pliers, scissors and a sharpie.
1: Cut out your feather template.
2: Trace your feather template. Twice.
3: Cut out your leather.
4: Make a tiny slit at the top of your feather.
5: Put your earring hook through the tiny hole, and close with your pliers. Make sure its going the right way, that's one mistake I made.
6: Now make a slightly curved line with a black sharpie (that's just my preference).
And there you go, some nice chic leather feather (that rhymes) earrings. And they only took, what..... 5, 10 minutes. So easy right!
Hope you enjoyed this little DIY!
