Kitty found glitter in the craft cupboard.
“Let’s make sparkly ornaments, Mom” she said.
Just then, Teddy came in with a white goose feather… and an idea was born.
I have a stash of goose feathers that I brought out for us to use. What? Doesn’t everyone have a stash of goose feathers? Well, now you know you need one. In fact, a stash of everything is preferable. You never know when you’ll need something and it’s always best to have it on hand.
We found some school glue and put down a sheet of craft paper to contain the glitter mess… yes, no matter how hard you try, glitter will get everywhere!
We put glue on each feather with a paintbrush and then doused it with a liberal sprinkling of glitter.
A little shake and your pretty feather ornament is sparkly!
After each feather had dried, we threaded a needle with thread and passed the thread through the tip of the quill to make a hanging loop to put our feathers on the Christmas tree.
But, they look so pretty loose too, so there are now a few in a white vase on the mantle looking very stylish indeed.
Isn’t Christmas fun!
