Line the inside of the bangle with glue. The amount of glue necessary depends on the number of feathers you want to use. If you want to line the entire bracelet with feathers, apply glue along the entire bangle.

Tips

Some brands of jewelry glue dry quickly. For best results, apply the glue at small intervals. Alternate between adding feathers (Step 2) and glue to ensure that the glue does not dry up before you bring in the feathers.

Add the feathers on top of the glue. Remember, the “front” of each feather should be facing down. Gently press each feather into the glue to secure.

Let the bracelet dry in a well-ventilated area. Once the glue is completely dry, your new bracelet is ready to adorn your wrist.

Feathers in neutral colors are ideal for creating a natural, bohemian look. For a more edgy version, use feathers in a bright color such as turquoise or maroon. You can find craft feathers in a wide variety of colors at your local craft store.
