We still have a month and a half left of spring. That’s plenty of time to give your porch or garden some springtime decoration.This sparkling feather garland is a super easy craft project, and it will give you something to fill up your day for an afternoon.

Step 1:

Paint half of your white feather a pastel color and let dry.

Step 2:

Once the color is dry, paint over it with some acrylic glitter glaze.

I put a coat on each side of the blue half so it would sparkle from any angle.

Step 3:

Repeat the process using different spring colors.I used four colors and made three feathers per color. 

Step 4:

Measure your string out to leave some room to hang it later.I used sparkly string so it would sparkle with the feathers.

Step 5:

Having your string ready, dab some super glue onto one of your feathers.I used superglue because it was the only way I could keep the string attached. You might know a better way.

Step 6:

Wrap your string around the feather stem, leaving enough line on the end for hanging it up later.

Step 7:

Hang them, and enjoy the rest of spring!
