Wedding Wish Sticks
Normal

I was in Rite Aid last week and I saw this feather duster for $3. I stood in the aisle feeling every feather, staring at it, thinking about what I could make with it. I'm sure everyone walking by thought I was such a weirdo for feeling the feather duster and staring into space, but I was having a creative moment. Do you know how expensive feathers are? They are freaking outrageous! And these are premium, gorgeous, extra soft feathers! I have to tell you that I am a little obsessed with this feather duster and I think this feather craft will be the beginning of a long love affair. First the mason jar, then coffee filters, now the feather duster ...... I am warning you all!! See my pretty wedding wish sticks below.

What you need
(1) feather duster
8" popsicle sticks
Matte black spray paint
Silver pen
Glitter tape or ribbon
Hot glue

Alright, let's start. Buy a feather duster!

Now take it apart. It's easy. Hold the handle and grab the feathers in the palm of your hand and just pull them out in bunches. Set aside.

Now you need to paint your popsicle sticks. I used black matte spray paint. Obviously you can use any color you like. Line up all your sticks on a piece of cardboard and spray one side. Let dry then flip over and spray the other side.


 

Using a little hot glue you can attach one feather to the top of the stick. I then wrapped a piece of glitter tape over the base of each feather so it looked more finished. 

I would set these at the entrance of the cocktail hour so people could sip their drinks and sign a wish stick or write a little message to the new couple and then place it in the jar. Wouldn't these be so cute to keep on a desk after you were married! So much more fun than the traditional wedding book.
 

Love!
