In case you all missed the cameo the gold dipped feathers made in our Retro Chic New Years Eve Party Spread we did for Lauren Conrad, we thought we would share the full tutorial with you here!

These feathers were hard to catch photos of as guests were putting them in their hair and tucking them into their belts at the party. They certainly made fun party favors! And they were a cute little decor item at our New Years Resolution station! BTW for the deets on how we had guests take Polaroids of themselves and hang them up festooned with their new years resolutions, visit our blog post

Step 1: Put down a something to cover your workspace. I used a trash bag. Pour gold liquid gilding (I used Martha Stewart brand, and I loved it!) into a disposable cup.

Step 2: Dip white feathers in gold gilding.

Step 4: Dip the other side in gold glitter. I left some with just the gold gilding because I love it so much!
