Shabby Chic Christmas Feather Tree Tutorial

Hello lovelies!
I got published in the Fall Issue of Creating Vintage Charm!

Click to order!

For the holidays, this weekend, I am working on creating

fluffy jeweled maribu Shabby Chic Christmas feather trees!

I find village buildings at resale shops and paint them pink

(I plan to detail the houses with white paint and glitter )

I decided to create a pretty jeweled maribu feather tree to go with

the pink village.

To create these you will need:

*cone ( I used a crocheted one, but you can be creative)

*maribu feather boa

*hotglue gun


*silk, clay or organza roses for topper

*jewel scraps

~First, I cut my cone to make a flat bottom.

~Next, hot glue feather boa on, starting at the bottom and

spiraling your way toward the top, leave about 1/2 inch at top to decorate.

~Glue flowers evenly around the top. Add your vintage jewel in the center.

~Finally take a tiny bit of elmers glue with your finger and gently

dab it on the outer edges of roses, then sprinkle with a fine glitter.

I love how soft and dreamy the feathers appear to accent the pink house just perfectly! So creative and fun for the holidays!
If you don't have the time (or burning your finger patience) I will be listing some of these in my
Etsy (click to view) store.

I can't wait to see what everyone is creating for the Shabby holidays!I will be partying with the darling Beverly at How Sweet the Sound!
