I seriously die for Christmas. I look forward to it all year long and I am not sure if it’s because of the all the DIY’S I create or just because it’s the one time of the year I can relate to my childhood. I had a great childhood especially around Christmas time. My mother was always baking goodies and her decor was to die for, literally. She always went all out and I believe that is why I love decorating so much. So thanks mom if you are reading this!
For this project I wanted to show you a little bit of my bohemian side by creating glittery feather ornaments. These are so much fun to do and they look great when they are completed. They add a softness to any tree and you could also turn them into a feather garland. The possibilities are endless yo! Also, think outside of the box… Christmas ornaments don’t always have to be BALLS!
Don’t forget to add this hashtag when sharing my awesome post!!!
Other things you will need for this project are…
*Gold Glass Glitter
Folk Art has a large variety of colors so I am sure you will find the right ones for your Christmas decor!
Step 1: Place your white feather on a clean paper towel.
Step 2: Paint the bottom portion of your feather with FolkArt paint.
Do multiple feathers with different colors. You always want variety!
Step 3: Grab your Mod Podge Sparkle because we are about to go cray cray on these feathers!
Step 4: Add a generous amount of Mod Podge on the bottom portion of the painted section.
About Mod Podge
Step 5: Sprinkle your glass glitter immediately after you apply the Mod Podge. I suggest placing the feather at this point under a sheet of paper so you can easily pour the left over glitter back into the bottle.
SHAZAM! How beautiful are these!
Step 6: After your glitter section is dry apply a nice layer of Mod Podge Sparkle over the entire painted section, also over the glitter. We want to seal all this awesomeness onto the feather.
Step 7: Take a normal Christmas hook and straighten up on end, then wrap it around the bottom of the feather. Frankly I think they look so cool like this. You could also use ribbon for this part or cool wire!
And just like that you have amazing glittery feather ornaments. I think I will make a ton more and make cute garlands for my house. Whatcha think! What colors will YOU USE?
