The easiest, cheapest wall art you'll ever make.
Before I did this project, I knew I wanted to fill this hoop with fabric as wall art, but I was unsure HOW I wanted to go about doing it. After failing at transferring on a photo, and not being able to find a fabric that went with the rest of my wall art, I had to get a little bit more creative. I had previously seen a tutorial online for stamping with feathers, so I decided to give it a try! I love the way this project came out. And it was so simple and easy.

First, decide on a phrase to stamp onto your fabric. I used a regular stamp pad, but you could also use fabric paint (white on a darker color might look good as well!). Carefully measure out how you will fit your phrase in the hoop. But don't be too careful, since the imperfections are part of the charm of this project!
Next, stamp on your feather. Take a feather, lay it on your stamp pad and put a piece of paper over it. Use a small roller (or get creative - I used a wine cork!) to roll over the feather and paper. Press hard and really coat the feather. To stamp, lay the feather ink side down on your fabric, lay a clean piece of paper over it and roll over the feather carefully. You may want to do it once on scrap fabric or paper first to get rid of any excess ink. If you need to, use tweezers to transfer the feather to and from the fabric to avoid smudging the ink with your fingers.
