Part Two: Pom Pom, Feather Necklaces for Kids

So part two of my pom pom madness!

Pom pom, feather necklaces on a silver leather cording. I love these so much.

For the feathers, I had to attach an end crimp on the end of the feather. I used regular pliers I found in my husband’s tool box to secure tightly.

I then had to slide the end of the crimp through the tiny key ring. (Exactly like sliding a key through a ring.) This was the most challenging part, but still easy enough. Once done, I put the leather cord through the rings like so:

Those little rings just open and close by twisting it open carefully, and closing back together.
