The completed velvet feather earrings.These earrings are distinguished by their feather shape and laconic design. I used a piece of velvet fabric and copper wire from an old transformer, so it cost almost nothing.


Total Time: 40 Minutes + time for the glue to dry


  • velvet fabric
  • wire 0.8 mm diameter, I used copper wire from an old transformer
  • 2 jump rings
  • 2 earring fish hooks
  • cardboard
  • pencil
  • pen
  • scissors
  • awl
  • mat or piece of board
  • PVA glue
  • brush
  • pliers and wire cutters


  1. Draw a feather on the cardboard and cut it out. This will be the template.
  2. A feather template made from cardstock.
  3. Place the velvet fabric on a flat, hard surface. Place the template on top and circle the template with a pen. Cut the feather out of the fabric. Flip the template in a mirrored position and cut another feather from the fabric. The two fabric feathers should match when overlapping with the right side out.

    Cut another pair of fabric feathers.
  4. Cutting out the velvet feathers.
    Two pairs of mirrored feathers cut from velvet.

  5. Glue the pairs of feathers together with the right side out. Let them dry well. Reapply the template and trim the edges.
  6. Gluing the feathers together.
  7. Make holes with an awl at the top of the feathers.
  8. Creating a hole in the top of the feathers.
  9. If you are using copper wire from an old transformer, carefully scrape off the coating with scissors and polish.

    Cut two pieces of wire 2.5 times the length of the feathers. Bend the wire in half. Insert the ends of the wire into the fabric feather hole from opposite sides as shown in the photo. Pull the ends of the wires to form a loop on the inset of the fabric feather. Bend the wires in the middle of the fabric feather like a template on both sides. Cut off the excess.

    Do the same with the second feather.
  10. Attaching wire to the center of the feathers.

  11. Add the jump rings to loops. Attach the earrings to the fish hooks. Your feather earrings are ready.
  12. Attaching jump rings and earring hooks to the feathers.
