DIY: Egyptian Inspired Feathered Bib Necklace

Bib necklaces are all the rage and one of my favorite actress, from one of my favorite movies did it best! Elizabeth Taylor’s wardrobe in the movie Cleopatra was sick (Mom, since I know you’re reading this post, sick is a good thing!). I love when Cleopatra comes on Turner Movie Classics. I love it so much and feel incline to watch all 20 hours of it! Yes, I’m exaggerating but it’s a rather lengthy movie.

In Ancient Egypt, Egyptians wore solid gold bib necklaces as a way to show royalty and wealth. Today, celebrities wear bib necklaces on the red carpet as a way to accessories their decolletage. Either way, bib necklaces are show stoppers and can really make a statement. With this easy one step DIY project you too can create a bib necklace that makes everyone stop and stare.

 

Materials: Necklace, Feathers, Glue Gun, Scissors

This project is very, very simple. First, line up the feathers with the back of the necklace and cut off any additional feathers. Then, simply glue the feathers to the back of your necklace.

You can use any color feathers and it looks great paired with a blouse, tank top or even a dress. Be Inspired!
