and decided to give it a go myself. I love the simplicity and how
dainty they are. I did mine a bit different from my inspirations,
with a sea-side themed bedroom and bathroom this was the
perfect opportunity for me to use my collected beach objects.
The more I make our house a home the more I think about where
things come from and what they're made of. When my life ends I
don't want there to be a pile of my stuff left behind, a stain on an
otherwise beautiful blank canvass. This project was made up of
natural materials and leftover bits. The sticks, one shell, and sea
urchin were all found at the beach (See craft collecting post from
the summer, good thing I thought ahead!). The puka shells are from
a broken necklace (remember those things?!), while the jute and
feathers are from Michael's. Now, I've been looking into the origin
of craft feathers. I must say, there is a lot to read. I think I am going
to try to find local bird-friendly feathers. If there's anyone in the
Cape Breton area, or even the whole of Canada, that has information
on this, please do share!
The instructions are fairly simple for this: just tie everything to the
stick with the jute! I added the beads so that the knot would be
hidden and to tuck the feathers tips in. Thanks for stopping by!
