Hi guys! Today’s DIY craft was originally going to be ‘dipped’ feathers. But like most projects, it evolved in to something else. I am most likely going to create some sort of a garland with these cutie-feathers, and for that, I may post a tutorial (through my own trial and error). Also, these are smaller feathers (leftover from Ayden’s Birthday party). Next time I would probably use bigger feathers. (At the bottom of this post, I have included photos of how I re-purposed the feathers from Ayden’s party.)
Before I post my photos, I just want to say something about this DIY challenge. So today I wasn’t really feeling like crafting. I had a headache and I was feeling tired. Everything in me was saying ‘Ayden is napping! Go lay down!!’ But then I thought about some of the other people participating in this challenge, especially this bad-ass mama, brewed some coffee and got down to business. Being accountable to you, saved the day! The other thing I want to say about this challenge, is that forcing myself to create everyday, is sparking even more creativity. I am suddenly overflowing with ideas, and projects and I feel really inspired. Anyway, I wanted to share that. I will leave you with this rad Maya Angelou quote, “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have”.
Painted Feather DIY
I couldn’t part with these sparkly, glittery feathers, so I put them in an old honey jar (which was a favor from a friend’s wedding), and put them on my desk so I could enjoy them every day.
Thanks for reading!
