Handmade Feathers

Don't you just love a happy accident?!?! I was working on another project for my sons room that did not turn out but out of that mishap came the idea for these winsome flourishes.

What does one do with feathers?

Well, for the first project I made a yarn wrapped wreath for my oldest daughters room and hung it on her head board which is constructed of reclaimed barn wood.

The wreath would probably be beautiful with the feathers alone but I decided to add a couple of rosettes that I made out of left over, drop cloth scraps and a few felt flowers with beaded centers.

I'll be sharing a couple more projects using these lovely feathers this coming week.

Thanks for visiting!!!

Sharing this at Mop it Up Mondays, Singing Three Little Birds, Sugar and Dots, The 36th Avenue, Tatertots & Jello and Brassy Apple.

    1. Thank you! I'm also making some other items with handmade feathers, along with a tutorial, and hope to blog them soon. I had never seen them before and thought the very same thing. I'd love to see your necklace. Did you blog it?

      Often times I have an idea and if I don't execute quickly I usually end up seeing it in blogland soon after. Then I usually don't want to do it because I try my best to be original. Although there are times I find something I absolutely LOVE and just have to recreate.

    2. I feel exactly the same way...I hate when that happens..haha.It's getting more and more difficult now with Pinterest....I didn't blog about it but I had thought of doing a tutorial... I used a pipe cleaner and embroidery floss it took a long time to make because the floss is so fine..but I get a lot of comments about it...nice to meet you Jenny, I'm your newest fan...xo
