This is one of my favorite projects to do with my daughter.  We have so much fun blowing the feathers at each other and getting covered in mixed paint, lots of giggles ensue.  None the less, they always turn out perfectly imperfect.  There isn't a right or wrong way to paint the feathers because the beauty is in the uniqueness of each feather itself and each brush stroke paints on a special touch.

There are so many uses for these little beauties,  I have strung them together with clear fishing line as a garland and used them to adorn presents, hung as room decor and if you have ordered one of my Mini Treasure Pots you have likely received one of these special little feathers inside.  So, here is how we make them.

Feathers (I cut open an old down pillow)
Acrylic Paint
Paint Brush (any kind, we used a very inexpensive one)
Water (to rinse the brush)

 Now, lets get to work.

And Voila! Perfectly imperfect!

What would you use these fun feathers for?
