glitter + feathers // day six



I saw these, and immediately went to Michaels and bought the stuff for them. And guess what, it was all under $10. 


The directions said to pour the paint in a plastic cup and dip the feather in, wiping off the excess but I didn't have any cups. So I used a plate. Definitely recommend the cup idea.


It was hard to smear the paint on and it didn't come out as clean as I would have hoped. 


But hey, after I sprinkled the glitter on, they still looked smashing. So happy with the prettiness effect here. 


I want to string them up and hang them in my room. I love glitter. And Christmas. GUYS I LOVE CHRISTMAS. 


Can't believe it's already day six. I know I'm loving all this Christmas spirit!

I just did something similar for thanksgiving!! I made a hanging mobile and used feathers like this. I grabbed some turkey feather we already had hanging around the house, spray painted the tips gold, and then used spray glue and some glitter for an ombre effect. Love your white ones though!
