Crocheted Peacock Feather Earrings

 

So, you guys know that I am obsessed with crocheting baby stuff. But I am trying to branch out and have been interested in crocheted accessories. I have done a few things, like this African Flower Headwarmer and these Vintage-Inspired Armwarmers, but I still want to try to make some “less wintry” projects. I randomly got the idea to crochet peacock feathers, but was having a hard time finding the right yarn. I quickly realized that yarn would be much too thick for this project. Then, the idea to use embroidery floss hit me like a bolt of lightening! Maybe many of you have been crocheting with embroidery floss, but it honestly never occurred to me until I started thinking about these earrings. Luckily, it worked out wonderfully!

To make the fringe hold its place, I diluted some white school glue and moistened the strands. It’s best to do this on a hard surface, like a plate, instead of a newspaper or parchment paper. The paper will warp from the moisture, and your fringe will warp too! I also thought hairspray would work well as well.
Once they are dry, take some sharp scissors and trim your earrings into your desired shape. Some peacock feather earrings come to a point like mine, and some have a round or flat shape. Finish by attaching a short chain and an earring finding.

    Hi! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after browsing through many of the posts
    I realized it’s new to me. Nonetheless, I’m certainly happy I came across it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back often!
