I saw this feathery little idea last year and decided that this would be just the thing to bring some Thanksgiving spirit into our new home away from home.
We hung it it above our table, where we will enjoy a small but happy Thanksgiving feast with some good friends. We are so excited to be celebrating a holiday away from the hospital... even if Jason is still recovering and will be limited to only soft food at dinner (the doctor said he supposed Jas could have a bit of turkey too if it was very easily cuttable with a fork—so no pressure there to make the most tender, juicy turkey ever... yikes!).
In case you might want to make your own beautiful glittery gold feathers, here is a step by step. It was easy as can be. Gather up the supplies and string, dip, glitter, and dry. Voila!
(you may want to sort of wipe off the excess paint and save some time to let them dry over night)
They would be just beautiful in a vase to pretty up the Thanksgiving table, or a simple feather set next to each table setting. I'm thinking they might be a nice, feathery, addition to the Christmas tree!
I could a little obsessed.
