How To Make A Feather Wreath For The Holidays

Here are easy to follow, step by step instructions on how to make a decorative feather wreath for this holiday season.

Things you are going to need

1- one or two green feather boas

2- green spray paint

3- hot glue gun

4- some thick red ribbon

5- five peacock eye feathers

6- five peacock swords

7- solid wreath frame

8- loose green feathers

For the frame you can use a foam tube or any other solid tube shape. If you would like to go the green rout you can cut the top rim off of a five gallon dry wall bucket and use that.

1- Paint the frame green using the spray paint and let it fully dry.

2- Using the hot glue gun attach the boas and loose feathers to the frame. Make sure that it looks nice and evenly done.

3- Trim the quills of the peacock feathers.

4- Using just a small amount of hot glue on the back side of the peacock feathers attach them to the wreath facing outward. Place them systematically (one eye feather one sword feather) around the wreath.

5- Create a hinge with the ribbon to hang the wreath where ever you would like.

Enjoy & Have A Happy Holiday Season
