Best of Smocks: Feathers Art

Has there ever been a more perfect theme for an art challenge than feathers the week before Thanksgiving?! Our host Lisa from @theartgardenblog did one heck of a job inspiring and cheering on and there was so much feathery goodness over on @smocks.on -- I have no idea how she narrowed down all of that fly...and she did it all from Disney World 😍 Thank you, thank you, thank you, L!

And, now, without further ado, let's get down to the best of Feathers Art round-up.

If you see a project you love and want more info about, just click on the picture and it will take you straight to the original smockstar's post for directions from the deets. Let's do this!

Feathers were made to be unicorn manes! How did we not see this before?! Genius.

Rebekah and her ultra-cute little ladybugs got to work chopping and building and came up with these heart-eye inducing feather-and-straw forest sculptures.
