Make a #DIY Duct Tape #Feather with Marisa Pawelko @ModSurrealist

I think I'll try sharing fun DIY Videos weekly.  Why not?

I need to get more into the YouTube thing anyway.  This is a video with one of my crafting role models, Marisa Pawelko.  She is the person who dubbed me America's Next Top Crafter in 2010!  That was a lot of fun for me.

If you start this video at about :50, you'll see the materials they use and the DIY begins.  I have been liking the feather motif as of late, so this is perfect!  I loved the idea of making duct tape feather earrings!  You may see my own DIY on that little projét!  

If you don't have time to watch, here's what they did-

Materials: Duct tape, chenille stem (pipe cleaner), non-stick scissors

Procedure: 1. Cut a strip of duct tape that is longer than your chenille stem and lay it sticky side up on the table.  2. Place your chenille stem on top of the tape.  3.  Cut another strip of duct tape the same size and lay it on top so the sticky sides are together.  4.  Trim into the shape of a feather with non-stick scissors.  5.  Clip the feather diagonally, repeatedly toward the stem to make little strips. (see video) 6. Ruffle your feather to show the texture.  (see video)
