Simple DIY Lightbulb Feather Ornament Christmas Gift

I have a┬ásimple DIY Lightbulb feather ornament for you to make for yourself, or as a gift for Christmas. Last year, I made tons of these lightbulb hand made 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.

    Great idea. These do look like something you would find in a high end store. It is true the packaging makes it feel all the more special and trendy even when it is really easy. Love this. I wonder if it will work with peacock feathers?

  • Those ornaments are so cute, they could be a natural element or rustic or even bohemian. Great idea! Thanks for joining the DI & DI Link Party. Merry Christmas!
