Pumpkins with Feathers DIY


Pumpkins and feathers! What a beautiful combination of two organic elements. I  found 3 beautiful “cinderella” style white pumpkins at a local market and enjoyed crafting with one of them. The idea I will show you below, came to me while on one of my outings to Ben Franklin craft store. I was perusing the specialty papers aisle and saw a beautiful black and sparkly sticker paper.   This paper reminded me of shiny black feathers and decided to die cut a few feathers for a future project.  I put together a brief tutorial of my project and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it!


I made these feathers out of glittery black sticker paper sold at Ben Franklin craft store. Then I used one of their “dies” in this case a feather and cut the sticker paper.
