I found some glass bird ornaments at the dollar store I was surprised to find they were thick glass and really nice quality .

I liked them but I was not in love with the feathers
I started to play around and this is the result .

I used  metal leaf glitter wire crystals feathers  .






before













What do you think Huh




Blue My Helper  she cant control herself when I use string wire or feathers .

I really like those! My kitty (who was too young to be around the tree last year) has 'helped' my by extracting all the feathers off my glass bird ornaments! (He then set them neatly on my spot on the couch- I couldn't stay mad at him after his friendly gesture!) This would save and spice up my ornaments!
