Anthropologie White Feather Christmas Tree Knockoff

Some of you may have read my Anthropologie in Rockefeller Center post here where I was inspired by their feather trees but not by the price.

I decided to see if I could make mine. Here is my attempt.

Feathers Feathers Everywhere!

The styrofoam tree was about $2.00. The feathers with a coupon from Michaels came to about $1.25 and the glue was on hand.

I like it. I could do better but not too bad. And hey, you can't beat the price!

Take that Anthropologie!

"Christmas is not a time or a season
but a state of mind.
To cherish peace and good will,
to be plenteous in mercy,
is to have the real spirit of Christmas."
- Calvin Coolidge
