Here is the original post:
Hello everybody! I am so thrilled to be participating in this week's Trim the Tree Party. I have a super easy ornament tutorial for you today, that looks beautiful on the tree. My style is very eclectic, vintage and bohemian, so my tree this year is what I like to call "boho glam." It is filled with feathers, beads, jeweled pieces and shimmering ornaments. Recently, I decided a few more couldn't hurt, which is when I came up with these feather snowflakes!
Here is what you will need:
(this list contains affiliate links*)
-several small feathers in the color of your choosing - I used 8 - 12 each per ornament
-twine or string
-cardboard pieces cut into small squares
-jeweled embellishments - I chose to use rhinestone buttons and vintage jewelry pieces. You can often find these at thrift stores, antique shops, or purchase them online by searching: salvage jewelry lot.
I gathered up my supplies and found the jewelry pieces that I wanted to use. Some were brooches with the backs already broken off, but I removed them from the ones that weren't.
For the backing, I cut up small cardboard pieces and glued tied strings of thin twine tied in a loop.
I started making the ornaments with just white feathers. I had to cut the feathers down because the ones that I had on hand were bigger than I wanted to fit on the tree.
I hope that you enjoyed this ornament tutorial and give it a try!
Come follow along with me!
Thank you Jennifer for letting me join in on the party!
Till next time...
