DIY | New Years Feather Garland

I’ve never been more excited to start a new year. Don’t get me wrong, a lot of wonderful stuff happened this year, like launching this blog and so many new babies born this year amongst my friends.. but it has been a tough one. I try to stay positive and not get into the messy details of my life on here, so let’s just say that I am praying for a less eventful one next time around lol.
Bring it 2013!
I decided to make a few decorations due to the fact that I have little to none for this particular holiday! This one took me about 10 minutes to complete and it turned out really cute and just how I planned!
Go ahead, get your glitter on girl!
All you have to do is paint the spines of the feathers with a similar colored acrylic paint (try not to get the tips because the tend to stick together, if you do just use an eyelash brush to untangle them while they are still wet.) Then just sprinkle the painted area with a similar colored glitter (or white.) Let dry for at least 30-60 minutes then tie each feather in random distances onto a thin white thread. There ya go, all done!

Happy New Year’s Eve, Loves! I hope you have as many high hopes as I do for the 2013! 
See ya next year!
