Well hi welcome to my little blog. Just my little corner of craftiness, sewing, and refashioning. I am also a newly gluten free eater so you have a little bit of recipes mixed in here.

Peacock Feather Ornament: Iron Craft Holidays

I love peacock and their feathers. Just love them. The iron craft challenge was making something for the holidays. I actually had another project up and going but I don't know how to finish it. That will come later, got to think. Instead after putting up my Christmas tree I decided I wanted to make more ornaments, it is starting to become tradition. I have a huge stash of peacock feathers I decided to turn it into an ornament. :)

First I trimmed some off the bottom of the feather. Then I grabbed a clear ornament I got at Joann fabric. The hardest part of this project was simply getting the feather in the tiny hole. Easiest thing was to twist it with my finger. Then add the top back to the ornament. I had the stem go through the hole. Trim a little off the top. And it was perfect.
Hardest thing next was getting a decent photo without the glare. We actually had some sunshine in the apartment.
Soooo lovely. Yay!! I actually got inspired after this to make more ornaments. This time with beads. They are almost done too! Need some good after shots. I used up so much beads my stash has dramatically shrunk. Exciting!
