DIY Anthro Ornament

Blown Glass Ornaments with delicate feathers are everywhere this year.  I decided to take on Anthropologie's version as I knew I could make one for less than $14 a ball.  I mean... come on Anthropologie!!! You made this one too easy.  No mine does not have a blown glass hook, but once it's hung in the tree would you really notice?  Plus, I have the opportunity to change out my feather next year.  

All I used was a set of clear glass ball ornaments from the craft store.  Simply remove the hanger & insert the feather of your choice.  DONE!  Even if you don't have a crafty bone in your body, you too can do this.

For our main tree I duplicated this look using fluffy white feathers & still made ten ornaments for less than $14.

Here are a few feather ornaments that are a little more difficult to DIY.

Z Gallerie's version is a gorgeous shape & at 13"high a piece, 
I could see spending a little more money on these.

Again, beautiful shapes that compliment each feather are all combined in this set from DwellStudio.

West Elm is on board too.


At $3.95 Crate & Barrel wins for best value for sure.  
I wouldn't bat an eye at that price tag.  Plus it even has the fancy hook :)

I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving & are recovering from your food comas.

  1. I love those clear ornaments, and I love the feathers!

  2. Beautiful! Seriously identical! I just may have to make some!

  3. What a great, simple project! Love this idea.

  4. Oh, how pretty! This is easy peasy -- and it looks great, too! My husband and I have the Crate and Barrel feather ornament, and it is one of our favorites on our tree! But I can definitely see making some more -- and for that price?! I mean...come on! Thanks so much for sharing with us!

  5. Your ornament is so pretty, I love the peacock feather, and less than $1, we could cover our trees in them!
