It started out as a good idea. I mean, an egg-shaped feather wreath sounds great for Easter, right? I made up a quick one to see if it as, indeed, cute. I showed my mom. She looked at me like I was crazy. So I blame her for the tutorial not working out. I thought it was cute enough to share with you so I decided to do the full tutorial the next day.
So I forgot how I did the first one. And the more I tried to figure it out the dumber it got. I had wire everywhere. It started scratching my table. I was bummed. On a side note, feathers are the pits. If you’ve ever bought them from the craft store you know that when you open up the bag, little tiny feather pieces float through the air. Straight up in to your nose. They litter your counter and as you go to wipe them up they just float away again.
But I kept going. Because in my head I knew it would end up cute. I had pictures of it all styled up in an Easter setting and just knew people would pin the crap out of it. But the feathers wouldn’t stay and the gold thread I used to tie the feather to the wire shape kept coming undone. What the!?!
So I failed this craft. One that I made up. I’m starting to learn that my crafts turn out a lot like my cooking. It can go very wrong, very quickly. So, if you like this idea, feel free to use it and make it even better. And now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go eat a jumbo sized box of Nerds. As an appetizer to dinner. Which may or may not include ice cream.
