How About A Feather Bouquet

I love feathers of all kinds, I think they are so interesting and each one is so unique.  Creating a feather bouquet is a fun accessory and works just about anywhere in any vignette.

I love this little vase that I added gold leaf stripes to.   I hadn't used it for anything yet so I thought it was perfect for a bouquet of feathers.

This is where I showed you how to do the large cylinder and this small vase using Frog tape and my 24K gold paint.  (you can see that tutorial here). 

I just taped off several areas to leave this one open so I could make stripes.

I used an assortment of feathers that I had on hand.  I love how each is so different.

I added one just laying on the tray for some added interest.

I love the look and what a great way to add something unique and interesting to a simple vignette.

  Next time you are wondering what to do, maybe a feather bouquet would be the solution.
