DIY Gold Tip Feather Garland

Simple Stylings
by Simple Stylings
With the holidays right around the corner, this beautiful (while still inexpensive) feather garland is a perfect addition to my living room! I think I paid $14 dollars in supplies for this total!
I just used some string I had on hand, my trusty glue gun and gold spray paint. I put a dab of hot glue on the tip of each feather and stuck them to the string, each one about 3 inches apart. This part was a little tricky because I had to get the string on the feather without burning my fingers (okay, I burned my fingers a little but I’m used to it by now!). I started out by holding the feather in one hand and putting the glue on it then trying to put the string into the glue while still holding it.
Once the feathers were glued I spray painted the tips of the white feathers gold. I used a piece of thick paper (a Piperlime ad to be exact) to mark where I wanted the gold to stop and gave it a quick spray.
This really is so easy and you could use anything if you don’t have feathers…acorns, leaves, pinecones, twigs, etc.
So what do you guys think?

    This looks great! Light and airy and graceful! I like the way you alternated the hawk/owl feathers with the chicken/duck feathers!

    Yes without a doubt. I have many beautiful feathers as I have four large parrots. Never ever thought about using my beautiful feathers. I am so excited to do this project. Thank you everyone yay
