DIP FEATH­ERS IN GOLD

Country Sampler Autumn Decorating SIP - - Inside - DE­SIGNED AND PHO­TOGRAPHED BY SUM­MER HO­GAN OF SIMPLESTYL­INGS.COM.

You could have this gor­geous gar­land hang­ing across your man­tel with just a few sup­plies and in­struc­tions from Sum­mer Ho­gan at Sim­ple Stylings. She used two kinds of in­ex­pen­sive feath­ers (less than $4!) from ebay as well as string and gold spray paint that she had on hand. For your gar­land, lay out your feath­ers about 3" apart, al­ter­nat­ing be­tween large white feath­ers and darker pat­terned feath­ers. Cut white string to that length plus ex­tra for hang­ing. Ap­ply a dab of hot glue to the tip of each feather and care­fully press into place on the string. When dry, spray paint the tips of the white feath­ers gold, cov­er­ing the rest of the feather with a thick piece of pa­per or card­board while paint­ing.

DE­SIGNER TIP Pro­tect your work sur­face, and avoid touch­ing the hot glue un­til it has dried.
