  • 4-inch White feathers
  • Bostik Fast Tak Contact Adhesive 
  • Gold Glitter 
  • Parchment paper 
  • Small disposal bowl or paper plate
  • Small pot or cup

Cover your work area with parchment this will protect it from the glue and glitter.  I had an area for spraying, an area for leaving to dry and an area for glittering.

Hold your feather the bottom third with glue spray. I found that preparing four or five was optimum as the glue didn’t set before I got the glitter on.

Holding your feather over a bowl or plate sprinkle with glitter.

Before tapping off the excess and setting on to a sheet of parchment paper. once you have glittered them all gently remove them from the parchment paper and pop them upright into a jar to continue to dry.

I have been delighted with how these turned out. They are so effective and look amazing.  I used different sizes of glitter but prefer the fine one.

Gather your feathers together and make them sparkle with this fabulous DIY glitter feather tutorial.

They would also look wonderful in silver or with iridescent glitter too.

I was prepared to have to overspray the feathers with a protector, but the Fast Tak is a fabulous adhesive and once you tap ff the excess the rest is firmly secured and I have crafted with them without losing loads of glitter.
