Taught by Courtney Cerruti
Courtney focuses on a single motif—the iconic feather—to create a variety of colorful, modern home décor projects. She constructs an ombre chandelier using paper feathers in shades of blue, and she also uses feather stencils in various sizes to add a splash of color to a pillow and a cocktail tray. To cut out the pieces for all of these projects, you can use a cutting machine like Cricut Explore™ to speed up the process, or simply cut out the paper and stencils by hand with scissors or a craft knife—either method works great, and you will wind up with stunning results that add color and whimsy to your home.
