Gold Dipped Glitter Feathers

We know we’ve been on a gold kick lately (as seen here and here!), but can you blame us? Gold is sooo trendy right now! And when it comes to hopping on a trend, why not try it out when there isn’t much of a commitment? We’re not saying go out and buy a gold chair, paint your walls gold, or get a gold bedspread…but maybe you could do a fun little 5-minute gold craft with us!

And did we mention that this lil’ craft is perfect for an upcoming holiday?

Gold dipped glitter feathers

These glittery/gold/fabulous feathers could add some serious sparkle to your Valentine’s day decor and we’re going to show you how to make them in less than 5 minutes.

Glitter martha steward metallic paint
Here’s what you’ll need…
-Gold glitter
-Gold craft paint
-Clear Lacquer Spray
Paint the top portion gold
After you gather your supplies, you’ll simply paint the top portion of a feather and then immediately sprinkle some gold glitter onto the wet paint. Complete all your feathers, let them dry, and then spray on a thin coat of clear lacquer. The clear spray paint will help “hold” in those sparkles so they don’t end up all over your home. So be sure to seal in those sparkles or you may have a mess on your hands…
Glittery feathers
Boom…you’ve officially hopped on the gold and glitter bandwagon. See that wasn’t so bad!
