~DIY paper feather wreath~{thrifty Thursday}

Today's project is twice as fun because it is part of a blog hop.
If you are here from The Hunted Interior, welcome!

My friends Jamin and Ashley over at the Handmade Home asked me to be a part of a fun challenge.
They just happened to be the authors of several wonderful books, found here. 
The challenge was this:
To use an image from one of the 3 books, but in a way other than just framing it.

I chose a page out of the Art For The Eclectic Home book.
It's called "Tribal feather" by Courtney Oquist.

As to not damage the book, I made several color copies of the page printed onto card stock,  cut all the feathers out and cut the edges with scissors in a random fashion. I also creased the feathers down the center to give them a little dimension.

To make the wreath form, I simply traced the inside and outside of a large 
bowl onto a piece of cardboard and cut out.

Next, attach a ribbon with hot glue.

Then just start glueing on the feathers, overlapping them, but keeping in the same direction.

Pretty easy right?

Have a great day friends.
