It’s so easy, and I actually got some really cool effects by stamping metallic paint onto colored feathers that I found in my local Michaels store.

I’m featuring the full tutorial over at the DecoArt blog here. I used DecoArt Metallics paint and rubber stamps to decorate these fancy feathers.

Once I started decorating the feathers, I couldn’t stop. And then I needed to embellish something with them, of course.

I thought they made perfect hair accessories!

Along with stamping on feathers, I also had some great results with simply painting metallic stripes onto them.

Once I had my fancy painted feathers, it was really easy to turn them into cool headbands.

First, I started with colored elastic. I bought the set pictured below through one of the Pick Your Plum daily deals, but I know you can find some at your local craft or fabric store.

I cut a length (about 18″) of elastic and tied the ends together making it tight enough to use as a headband.

Then it was just a matter of gluing coordinating feathers on one side. I added some large jewels as well at the feather points for extra fashion flair.
