Steps

  • Step 1
    Using water-based markers, watercolor paint or liquid watercolors, decorate the color diffusing feather. Allow to dry completely.
  • Step 2
    Cut a length of embroidery thread. With a tapestry needle, stitch a design onto the paper feather. Tape loose ends to the back to secure. Be careful not to stitch too close to the edges or the feather may tear.
  • Step 3
    Optional: Add additional embellishments such as beads, buttons or felt if desired.
