Fun DIY Crafts To Make With The Crow Feathers You May Find Around Campus

Endless Potential

We’ve all seen them, and we’ve definitely all heard them–crows. We give them trees, in which they do such bird activities as roost, perch, and preen, and in return, they give us feathers. Scattered throughout campus, there are a number of uses for these feathers that we students take for granted. Here are some ideas:

Peirce Hacks: Face Masks

It’s October! The leaves are changing, you’re realizing that you shouldn’t have skipped that week of Modern Quest readings, and your once-perfect skin is beginning its annual shedding. With the cold weather comes dry skin and, boy, this year it’s looking rough. Your Glossier moisturizer has dried up and your $30 Organic Spirulina Gluten-Free Foaming Face Mask has grown spots of its own, so what can you do? This wouldn’t be a problem if you had access to a Lush or even the Target skin care aisle, but the closest thing in Gambier is the Burt’s Bees section in the Bookstore and, let’s be honest, your frequent VI trips have left you with a measly $3.44 on your K-Card. I guess you’ll just have to eat away your sorrows in… That’s it! Peirce! It’s time to game the system and make your meal plan work for you and your face.

Because Sendoff is coming up, I figured we Kenyonites should start taking some style tips from the “trendy” influencers partying in the desert.

Kenyon Lifehack: DIY Wine Fridge

unnamed

Those flowers were picked in early September, and are even more gross than they look.

Even for a lifehack, this one is pretty simple (and, perhaps, pretty hack-y.) All you’ll need to get started is — a) a bottle of wine, b) a window (preferably in an NCA or New Apt., but you can covertly make this work in a dorm setting as well), and c) a brutal Ohio winter. Ready?

  • Step 1 — Select your wine. I went with “$3.83 Kroger bottle of unknown vintage.”

DIY Whine and Cheese Platter

via sellcell.com

Early December is proving to be a very difficult time. While half of you wants to assume fetal position and sob and scream because of finals and general end-of-semester anxiety, the second half wants to immerse yourself in holiday spirit, and the last half doesn’t want to leave the warmth of your bed and face the bitter cold on your way to Peirce. Yes, I know it gets so much worse, yes I know we’ve had it good so far, yes I know I’m just a naïve first-year but objectively speaking anything below 32 is freezing, leave me alone. With that in mind, what if I told you I have a fun, festive and easy “meal” you could prepare with items that are probably already in your fridge, ideal to enjoy with friends in the comfort of your own 10×10 dorm? You’d probably say, “Wow, Shayne, you’re a Christmas miracle, I love you, please enjoy this Sephora gift card.”
