Create your own Masquerade Mask at M&J Trimming this Halloween. Everyone will want to know who’s behind the mask!
It seems like yesterday it was summer and now Halloween is just around the corner. Maybe you haven’t even begun planning or are somewhat perplexed over your theme for your holiday gathering this year; well don’t fret because we’ve got some inspirational ideas in store for you. This Halloween try a more elegant approach to decorating for your holiday gathering. I worked up a few ideas for our decorations this year using feather trims and some inexpensive finds from your local floral or craft shop.
Materials for Wreath
How To Wreath:
For the wreath I just wrapped the two boas around it and secured with jewelry wire.
How To Centerpiece: The centerpiece was a bit more involved, but still very easy.
I was very thrilled when M&J recently began carrying feather patches. We have been having a lot of fun with them creating all types of accessories that fit right in with this season’s hot trend. So, you can only imagine my excitement when I discovered the new much larger version, a 20” x 15” feather mat (style #43361-Brown/Green Iris) available by calling 1-800-9-mjtrim. I thought this would look great on a throw pillow, and since I am currently looking to change the look of my apartment this came in just the nick of time. Throw pillows make a great accent in any room. By mixing colors and textures you can liven up the place and create a new ambiance with out the expense of purchasing new furniture or the timely chore of painting.
This summer, feathers made a come back. People everywhere are wearing them to accessorize headbands, hair clips, necklaces, earrings, bags, hats, shoes and the list goes on. The great thing about feathers is that you could get any look you want depending on your personality. You can go from a hipster look to a glamorous look with the right piece.
Feather patches are great if you want to make your own feather accessory. You would be surprised how easy it is to make headbands or jewelry with them. Here are 3 examples of how you could make your own Curly Goose Pad and Cameo Headband, Crystal and Feather Earrings, and Peacock Feather and Tooth Pendant Necklace.

Our rhinestone starter kit comes with all the essential tools (rhinestones and feathers not included). Your design will stay on all night long and comes off when you are ready to remove it with soap and warm water.
