  • How to make a feather earring. Pumpkin Feather Earrings - Step 1
    Step 1

    You need 2 big triangle-shaped orange feathers, & 2 small green feathers.
    *
    First i trimmed down the 'fluffy' feathers on the tops, to look more clean & rounded. And cut the stems so theyre roughly the same length.
    For green, you can cut/shape regular feathers down that small...if u have to.

    Take a small paintbrush & dip it in modpodge. Carefully dab on 2 "rainbow shaped" eyes, in middle of feather.
    Then a square-teethed pumpkin smile underneath.
    *
    Go slow to try not to mess up bc you canNOT wipe it off. And dont press hard, or the feather will break apart & wont stick back together. :/
    If you dont have steady hands or drawing skills, you might want to practice on paper or crappy feather first. lol

    Wait a few seconds, then lift & tap the glitter off. Once its totally dry you can blow off the few excess glitter.

    Make it permanent glitter by painting over the glitter face with gloss-modpodge again. (This does not affect the shinyness of the glitter once its dry)
