Today was a creative day because I went to my local Anthropologie to get my craft on! I signed up for the class on a lark, mainly because I adore their displays and thought I could learn more about them. It turns out we actually helped the display make feathers for their soon to be installed holiday decor. How exciting is that!
The lovely Audra taught the class where we were instructed to make paper feathers and then paint them gold. This was an easy craft for me because I am very handy with an x-acto knife as well as paint.
The premise was straight forward: Use a stencil to cut out feathers, then cut little designs into the middle of the feather. Then paint them gold.
Here are my completed feathers. I think I like the one on the far left and the one in the middle the best.
This is going to sound insane, but I am so excited to have something I made up on the wall of Anthropologie. I have been shopping there ever since it opened and I would say, out of all of the brands I am a fan of, Anthropologie is my number one. Sometimes, when I am stressed out, I stop by the shop and just browse. I can feel the tension lift off my shoulders as I am inspired by all of the beauty surrounding me; I don’t even buy anything! I just let the allure flow over me. I know it is crazy to feel such an affinity for a brand, but I can’t help myself. So thanks Anthro, for letting me feel like a little part of me contributed to your decor the way your designs have inspired my home.
