I have a simple DIY Lightbulb feather ornament for you to make for yourself, or as a gift for Christmas. Last year, I made tons of these lightbulb handmade holiday ornaments, placed them in a cute gift box, and gave them in sets of three as presents. The good news is, these feather tree decorations don’t actually look like homemade gifts, but like something you would see in Anthropology. I have these stylish DIY ornaments hanging on my Christmas tree this year and I get compliments on them each time a guest comes over.
If you are looking for a cost-effective and thoughtful Christmas gift, try these handmade feather ornaments. You only need a few items that can be purchased at a local craft store, or on Amazon for inexpensive. Plus, this DIY holiday gift idea only takes about 5 minutes to make just like this Simple Wire Wreath that was inspired by Joanna Gaines! Who has time for complicated holiday DIY Decor crafts? Not me.
