Other Supplies

5 small white fake feathers, Liner and 1/2" flat paint brushes, 5 small bottles with neck lip, 24" long piece of thin wire, Wood slice, Glass dome

Instructions

  1. Feather designs are endless. The ones pictured were painted as described below:
    • Pink: Basecoat in Carnation with the flat brush paint from the center rib out. Paint the base of the feather Grapefruit and blend up.
    • Blue Spotted: base coat half of the feather Navy and the other half Aqua. Paint small Black spots over entire feather.
    • Brown: Basecoat in Ganache. Paint the tip Black. Paint tiny White dots over the Black tip and a few at the bottom of the feather.
    • Navy: Basecoat the feather with an ombré of Navy to White. Paint the tip of the feather Marigold.
    • Gray: Paint stripes on the feather in Grey Mist. Paint a line of Lime Green dots in between the gray stripes.
  2. You may need to paint both sides of the feather for full coverage. Feel free to water down the paint slightly for easier coverage. Set aside to dry.
  3. Arrange the five bottles in a line. Take your wire and fold in half. Take the bent end and twist 3-5 times. Separate the two ends of the wire and twist around the lip of the first bottle 4-5 times. Again separate the two wire and twist around the next bottle's lip. Continue until all of the bottles are connected.
  4. Twist the wires closed around the final bottle. Curve all of the bottles into a circle. Wrap the leftover wire around the first bottle and trim the wire if necessary.
  5. Place the feather collection on a wood slice and cover with a glass dome.
