~Birds Of A Feather Sparkle Together~

With the fun popularity of feathers these days the kids at the community ceneter and  I decided to create fun some  feather earrings and feathers for the hair for this next Art Glitter project . We began with different colors and sizes of feathers, wrapping 24 gauge colored wire with seed beads around the top of the feathers. This will then be a place to attach the jumpring and fish hook ear wires for the pierced earrings. For creating the feathers for the hair, we did the same thing but attached the feather to the wire with a small rubber band to then be wrapped in the hair.
It was fun using the Art Glitter for these feathers as the sparkle is amazing and it is the perfect touch for these fun and funky earrings. And of course the girls felt that the more “sparkle” the prettier the feather design!! Some just dipped the tip of the feather by first lightly brushing the Art Glitter DesignerAdhesive at the tip of the feather (or wherever you would like some awesome sparkle!) and then either sprinkle the Art Glitter over the feather for a light sparkle or dip it for more of a vibrant effect!

Some had the idea to put 2 feather together on each side adding more color and interest!

 To finish these beauties up attach a small jumping and fish hook ear wire  to the  wire wrapped area at the top of the feather and voila…. Beautiful, sparkly colorful earrings in no time! The girls loved this project and wanted to wear them even before they were dry!!! Hope you all have a wonderful experience creating these easy and fun feather earrings and hair adornments!
