We’re always looking for new ways to add to our space. The more the better! What are your favorite accessories in your room? We think this may be your new favorite!

What you will need:

  1. Glass cylinder
  2. Feathers
  3. Hot glue gun + glue
  4. Scissors
  5. Candle + candle holder

Step one: Pick a place to begin on the jar. Start by snipping the end of the feather. You want to leave just a little bit, but majority should be cut off for the best result.

Put a dab of hot glue at the bottom where you will secure the end of the feather stem.

Continue to do this all the way around. We thought it looked best to use a variety of feathers when gluing around the vase.

Once you have covered the glass cylinder, put the candle in the center and place anywhere in your room! We decided to pair ours with a few crystals and salt lamp.

    This craft is actually in violation of the International Migratory Bird Treaty act, which prevents the collection and use of feathers without permits required for scientific use. The reason for this act is that it was fashionable in the early 20th century to create hats and other accessories from bird feathers, leading to the near extinction of certain species. While I appreciate that the blogger loves feathers as found objects, I think your company should not encourage the use of feathers in crafts and fashion.

      They probably didn’t use real feathers. I’m pretty sure those neon feather boas we wore when we were kids weren’t made with real feathers, either. 😉
