- Feathers. I purchased some like these from my local Jo-Ann’s store.
- Tacky Glue. This glue works really well on feathers, felt, leather, and glitter.
Dip the tips of feather into the glue. The key is to dip the feather very lightly and cover only the tips with glue. If you find it difficult to coat the tips evenly, try putting some glue on your finger tips and applying it to the feather tips with your fingers. This worked well for me, although I did have to stop and wash my hands a lot!
While the glue is still very wet, dip the feather tips into the pile of glitter. Move the feather around lightly until all the glue is coated with glitter.
If you’re like me, you’ll end up dipping more than one feather at once.
Set the feathers aside and let them dry. After about 15 minutes they will be dry enough to use in any craft or sewing project your heart desires. You’re done!
Beautiful, aren’t they? I just love glittered feathers! Head on over to my Feathered Headband tutorial to see what I did with the feathers in these pictures.
