It can’t have escaped your notice that feathers are everywhere at the moment. What’s not to love about them? They are soft, pretty, make great table decorations, and are a fun accessory in a kid’s headdress. My daughter has been collecting them whenever she sees them but you can also buy them and we have a colourful selection from Hobbycraft.
This week we’ve been spending a lot of time decorating our tipi. The weather has been unbelievably hot so the children have been enjoying playing outside. I wanted to make a dipped feather garland to decorate it and it turned out so well I thought I’d share it.
Equipment you will need to make dipped feathers
How to make dipped feathers
Decide how much of your feather you want to dip and place a piece of masking tape across the feather to mark the line.
Paint your feather with glitter glue. I used a matching glitter glue but you could mix it up.
Sprinkle with glitter in a matching colour and leave to dry. When completely dry remove the masking tape and you have beautiful dipped feathers.
