What to do with hundreds of feathers?
For xmas, I got a TON of flowers. A lot of dyed chicken feathers, along with guinea fowl and peacock feathers. There are all sorts, dyed, undyed, some of them are already put together in something that's supposed to be built upon. So far I've added some to some hair falls, and I've made a cat toy out of some, but that's all. I've always wanted feathers but now that I have them I have no idea what to do with all of them! Any ideas??
If i were you I would make a Black Swan inspired dress. Or make a Paradise bird (I mean, make a bird out of scratch and glue the feathers on it for its wings and tail)
A feather umbrella. Totally useless, but could look pretty cool. Or make yourself a pair of wings and learn to fly.
If you have enough of the right type you could use for stuffing an old fashioned pillow
Make dream catchers
dyed feathers? I would make a pillow out of it. stuff them to transparent material, then you'll have a funky pillow.
or attach them to a wig
wreath,purse,brooch...tried to add photos but cok wouldn't let me
Other than all the lady accesorries (earrings, fascinators, fans, etc) I remember seeing a kind of see through Christmas bauble stuffed with colourful feathers last year. Would be the time to start crafting for Crimbo
uhh.. Make a long cape with it or attach them to a standup collar. Halloween is coming up.
If you have lots of flat, non-fluffy feathers, use them for making butterflies (there are lots of tuts online) or decorative angel wings for christmas.
I have seen a pic of birds nests made of feathers ( http://www.ratgeberzentrale.de/uploads/tx_news/17147_27704_Bild1.jpg) which I really liked. You could also use them to make flowers. Somewhere I have seen a lamp shade made with feathers... a really cool idea !
You are so lucky having those tons of feathers!
You could make wings, or if your me, I'd make pens/Quill pens
