I'm having a moment with feathers over here. Actually, a moment with all sorts of old-school, natural materials: leather, wool, wood and of course feathers. I always find myself drawn to these things as we head indoors for Autumn.
Are you in the mood for feathers too? Here are a few ideas to get you started:
1. As a Centerpiece:
Feathers can be added to floral centerpieces, but I think they stand up pretty nicely on their own. Especially when paired with a lovely pop of gold.
2. As a Garland:
I love the idea of hanging feathers (real or paper) at an event! You can see a version of a feather garland I made here.
3. Dyed to perfection:
Can you believe how beautiful these ombre dyed feathers are? You can see the full how-to here. This could be a great project with kids using bright colors.
4. Feathers with a message:
Use rubber stamps to write a message on a feather. These would be great on a table or attached to an invitation or card. A great tutorial can be found here.
5. Make your own feathers:
You can take a variety of materials and make feathers out of them! Plain paper, of course, but also maps, leather, and felt to name a few.
