These DIY Gold Foil Feathers take just minutes to whip up and there are so many things you could use them for…
I was wandering Hobby Lobby for some inspiration the other day and came across this Krylon line of Foil Metallic Spray Paints. I picked up the Gold and Copper and am officially addicted (so expect a few gold and copper projects over the coming weeks!).
Initially, I had the idea to do watercolor feathers, but due to the feathers waxy coating, it just wasn’t working that well. So. I spray painted them instead. SO easy and they’re so pretty!
This is all you need for this project. I found the Quill feathers at Michaels.
I laid out a drop cloth and simply covered parts of my feathers with copy paper and did a quick coat with the gold foil spray paint. Be sure to spray straight down so the burst of paint doesn’t send your paper flying. You could also use some painters tape to hold it in place.
It takes about 10-15 minutes for them to be dry to the touch.
I plan to use them as pretty vase filler mixed in with pink florals, as decoration on my wreaths, and might even glue one to my straw Fedora hat to wear at the beach in a few weeks!
