Gorgeous Glitter Feather Ornaments

Kitty found glitter in the craft cupboard.

“Let’s make sparkly ornaments, Mom” she said.

Just then, Teddy came in with a white goose feather… and an idea was born.

I have a stash of goose feathers that I brought out for us to use. What? Doesn’t everyone have a stash of goose feathers? Well, now you know you need one. In fact, a stash of everything is preferable. You never know when you’ll need something and it’s always best to have it on hand.

We found some school glue and put down a sheet of craft paper to contain the glitter mess… yes, no matter how hard you try, glitter will get everywhere!

We put glue on each feather with a paintbrush and then doused it with a liberal sprinkling of glitter.

A little shake and your pretty feather ornament is sparkly!

After each feather had dried, we threaded a needle with thread and passed the thread through the tip of the quill to make a hanging loop to put our feathers on the Christmas tree.

But, they look so pretty loose too, so there are now a few in a white vase on the mantle looking very stylish indeed.

Isn’t Christmas fun!

DIY Christmas Tree Advent Calendar

I smile when I look back at photos of Christmas’s past. Isn’t it sweet to catch a glimpse of our little ones when they were even little’er?

Here is our DIY Christmas Tree Advent Calendar from two years ago, just after we moved into The Sunny House. Kitty, Teddy and I made it… although I filled the paper bags with little surprises all on my own.
