Feather Fun

101 (600x800)Last year I made some fun feathers out of paper- pretty scrapbooking paper, that is.  Take two pieces of paper, cut out in the shape of a feather… Then put a pipecleaner in the middle and  glue everything together. Make slits on either side as shown in the pictures.

I think I picked out some pretty papers What fun cutting them to look like feathers. I so thoroughly enjoyed this! I didn’t know what I was going to do with them but one day I saw the paper feathers on the dining room table and I was trying to declutter and I popped them in the spring flower arrangement in the center of the table. Wala!

So I stuck the feathers in and around the flowers and I really, really liked the way the whole thing looked.

This is a little hummingbird on a wire attached to a small cylinder with a battery and it vibrates the wire and makes the hummingbird look alive. It doesn’t get turned on very often but I HAD to have it when I saw it  at the Flower Show in Connecticut some years ago. It’s also in the Spring Bouquet.
