DIY: Feather Ankle Cuffs




I bought these feather trims a while ago because I thought I'd eventually make something cool out of them... and I did! Seeing I'm all about ankle cuffs these days (ie here and here), I decided to make some feather ones to add to my edition.

Here are the steps:

1. You will need some feather trims, thin ribbon and a glue gun.

2. Measure the size of your ankle and cut the feather trim accordingly. Glue the ribbon onto the top of the trim. Make sure that the ribbon is long enough so you can tie and secure a bow on your ankle.

3. Trim the feather trim for desired length.

And you got yourself an easy pair of feather ankle cuffs! I like how they look with my leopard choppers from Fitzroy Boutique- with the predators and the birds, I pretty much got the safari covered, and a top hat that I can pull Turbo out of.
