Colorful Feather Pens | DIY By Mystics + Mint


SUPPLIES

feathers (I bought mine at Michaels)
pen inserts
rit dye – pick 3 colors that you love
mason jars or bowls to place the dye in

11
Fill mason jars halfway with hot water and add your rit dye

22
Place wet feathers into the jars, let stand for about 5 minutes. The longer the feathers sit, the more saturated the color will be!

33
After you reach your desired color, flip the feathers over and soak the other half in a different color dye

44
Remove the ink cartridge from a pen using needle nosed pliers, if you have em!

555
Cut the pen to the length of the white stem of the feather

Insert the pen into the feather and there you have it! Gorgeous hand dyed feather pens!
