DIY: Glitter Dipped Feather Garland

DIY Glitter Dipped Feather Garland

This glitter dipped feather garland crafted up by Smitten on Paper is super dreamy, and has a bohemian glam look to it, while still feeling rustic. We definitely approve! It works great as a garland for an outside wedding or as a background for a photo-booth. Anyway you use it will definitely impress your guests. :)

Permanent Adhesive
Paint brush
Glitter (we used Martha Stewart in Smokey quartz)


1. Pour permanent adhesive into a small dish. Taking your paintbrush, begin brushing on adhesive onto the tip of your feather.
2. In a separate dish, pour the glitter. With this dish, dip the tip of your feathers.
3. Your feather is now all jazzed up. Now repeat the steps for all your remaining feathers. Let dry.
4. Once your feathers are dry, take your twine and cut different lengths of string. I cut some strings about 6″, 10″, even 16″ in length.
5. Begin double knotting the strands of twine onto your feathers. I even applied a dot of adhesive for extra hold.
6. After all your feathers are nicely glittered and knotted, begin tying them on to a larger piece of twine.
7. The larger piece of twine will run horizontally while the feathers hang vertically. My string measured about 90-100 in.
8. Now that all your feathers are hung on a string, you may use your garland anyway you like!
