When I was shopping for party shoes for my daughter, I saw these silver sandals.
I thought they were cute and they were discounted to the amazing price of $5.99. I couldn't pass up the deal. But, I didn't think the feathers were my daughter's style.
So, I removed the feathers with my jewelry pliers and added fish hooks ($2.99 at Michael's).
My daughter passed by, as I worked on this. She liked the feathers more as earrings than as sandal embellishments. So, these will be holiday gifts for her friends.
I ended up with sixteen pairs of earrings and a pair of sandals. Not bad for about $10 (we pay 9.25% sales tax in Santa Monica).
Have you begun your holiday gift crafting?
