Giveaway & DIY Foul Accessories

According to fashion blogs, all things animal are in this season: from leopard and zebra print to fur and feathers.  So I decided to make my own wild fashion!

Here's a tutorial on how I made today's giveaways!

The feather accessories are super easy.  I got the feathers from Hobby Lobby. 

 I cut a piece of fleece and hot glued it to the back of the feather (which already had a backing on it).
Then I made two slits in the back of the fleece (careful not to cut through to the feathers), and pulled an alligator clasp through.
Easy, huh?!

Okay, now for the bird's nest accessory.  Again, all the pieces came from Hobby Lobby.

I took the nest and glued in 4 eggs.
Then I took the bird and removed the wire from the bottom.
Then I hot glued the bird into the nest.
 I pulled the alligator clasp through a piece of wire on the bottom of the nest.
Easy again, right?!
