Looking for a really personalized gift? Add your favorite photo to this frame with feathers of any color.

It's said that birds of a feather flock together. This week's featured piece is a picture frame covered with feathers. What's really great is that you can follow my suggested colors or you can paint to match any room's decor. Making this one for a baby picture? Consider pastels, or pink or blue with brown highlights in each feather. Want to get bold? Let's move to brilliant reds, blues and purples.

Regardless of what color you use for the finishing touches, this frame will add personalized flair to any photo.
