Gather your feathers together and make them sparkle! Yes this is our first DIY Session. I have a few favourite colours, but Gold, oh yes gold has got to be at the centre of my eye right now and birds! I love birds! So why not combine the two. Here is a little idea that could be used with name tags, sent with your invites, something you could hang on the back of your chair or drape across the venue from wall to wall! So lets get started!

 

Glitter-your-feather

session 1 what you need

Gather you material together, a few sheets of newspaper for spray gluing and a sheet of A4 with a crease in the middle for glittering.
I have used Spray Mount glue, that can be bought from your local stationery & art store.

1

Take your feather and hold at the end and spray at a 45 degree angle starting at the tip  and moving  inwards.  a short quick burst of spray and that’s all it needs, it doesn’t need much spray glue at all. Do this on both sides of the feather.

2

Now it’s time for glittering! Have your gold sparkle glitter at the ready and sprinkle onto both sides of you feather. I prefer to use the fine glitter to add a delicate look. Don’t worry about getting messy or sprinkling too much on.

3

Once both side of your feather is glitter-fied, hold you feather at the end, between your fingertips and tap on your fingers with your other hand to get rid of any excess glitter.

4

and voilà  you have your glitter gold feather! Repeat to as many feathers as you like and leave to dry over night.

5

Here is just one of the ways you could use your glitter feather friend!

6

Enjoy your glitter feathers and show us what you would do with yours!!

Trying this out and notice after “drying” there is still about of tackiness. Am I using the wrong kind of glue? I had Elmers multi purpose spray adhesive so that’s what I used.

Hi Heather,
I haven’t used Elmers version of spray glue, but It needs just a light spray of glue and then a whole lot of glitter to cover.
It may be there is too much glue, this sometimes happens if you hold the nasal of the can to close to feather whilst spraying. Try spraying from about a hands length away – a quick swish of spray glue is enough to adhere the glitter to the feather.

Let me know how you get on!

Hi Ty, I used white craft feathers that I found on eBay, they weren’t too expensive and came in all different sizes.

Hi Kathy, the crease of the A4 sheet is s little handy tip to help when pouring the excess glitter back in the packet / dispenser. It makes it super easy.
