It all started with a casual stroll through target. My eye caught something gold and glittery. I instantly fell deep into love with this golden feather.
I couldn’t get the golden feather out of my mind for DAYS and that’s when I knew I had to have a DIY intervention.
Scouring the internet for a feather template, I came across the perfect one. I was so enamored with what Lia Griffith does with paper. Seriously, check her out, it’s amazing.
It really couldn’t have been easier. I printed off the template onto white paper. I didn’t want to haul my three cuties with me to Michael’s to find gold scrapbook paper, so I improvised. I just cut out the feather and painted it gold.
Several years ago, in my feeble attempt to decorate our first place together, I painted these canvases to match our eggplant colored chairs. You should have seen how happy I was at my first art project for our home. Fast forward 8 YEARS and those same canvases still grace our wall. There was nothing too terribly wrong with them, they were just boring blocks of color.
I’d contemplated doing many things to embellish them but I figured what better than a golden feather?
A dot of glue and these lovelies were born.
I really love them but my husband is not a fan so who knows if they’re going to stay. The jury is still out.
What do you think of my Target inspired feather art? Stay or go?
