I love Feathers. They’re pretty.
I love Easter. Dresses, spring, Easter hats, chocolate.
So why not combine two things that work well together.
I found some dyeable, reusable faux Easter eggs at Dollarama and knew I wanted to do something awesome with them. I also picked up a more expensive carton from Michaels just out of curiosity – they are basically the same except the Dollarama carton is curved and the Michaels one lays flat. They are basically the same quality.
I was wandering around the dollar store when I found these feathers and knew it was a perfect match for crafting spark. You know. That one project that leads you down a whole other path of great ideas. Well sometimes there are some not so great ideas too but I’ll have to save those for a bloopers post at some point. Or maybe not.
So I brought my finds home and grabbed my Modge Podge out of the garage… and waited for it to thaw out. I no longer keep my Modge Podge in the garage.
The project basically involves pasting down the feather with modge podge and a small foam brush being careful about the direction of the feathers as I brushed it on. I applied a second coat after it dried.
Tip of the day. When you are picking out feathers to use, choose smaller eggs, and above all make sure the quill is thin and small so that it lays flat against the egg.
