Hey…I hate to tell y’all, but Summertime and I had a talk and we have decided to break up. I told her I can’t take her intense heat anymore and that we needed to go our separate ways. And please forgive me for using the “F” word but I am already dreaming of FALL!. I mean, it’s not like I’m breaking out the pumpkins and apple cider or anything. I’m just dreaming of cooler temps and the fresh air that that season brings. Working outside has been fairly difficult with the high heat temps. I decided to do some creative work inside and make a paper feather garland. It looks cute in the house now, but can definitely transition into the “F” season
I used scrapbook paper and card stock from my craft stash. This porcelain feather became a template that I traced for one of the feather patterns.
Because I love y’all so much I created a sheet with 3 feather patterns for you to use. Just click the link below.
For added dimension I pinched the center of each cutout. I then used a hole punch for each paper feather.
I threaded each paper feather with this twine for a more rustic look.
I added the paper feather garland to the fireplace mantel. If you have been reading us for awhile, then you know that it is no secret that I love feathers in my decor…paper or otherwise.
I think the garland adds a touch of whimsy to the mantel.
This cobalt blue pottery bowl is handmade. It was a 10 cent garage sale purchase last year!
This garland will definitely get moved around a lot and used in different rooms of the house as my mood changes.
Did you see our chalkboard easel makeover? I made a smaller garland to dress up the board a little…
Are you dreaming of Fall too or are you holding onto the last weeks of Summer?
If you see Summertime please tell her “no hard feelings…it was me, not her”.
Have a great weekend everybody! Until Monday…
