Peacock feather lampshades

Because I moved my brown lampshades to my bedroom, I brought the white drumshades down to the living room.

Plain and boring, I wanted to give them a little zing :)

I found a simple image of a peacock feather and traced is using SCAL then cut them with my cricut I created a stencil at first, but nixed that idea because then the peacock feathers would be permanent. I like to change things up quickly and without too much fuss, so I cut them out of black vinyl. Perfect for me.
