It’s tid bit Tuesday, today and I’m all fluffy and feathered, giggle…. well let me explain. I am a crafty type ( but that tid bit is really well known isn’t it?) When I was decorating last week I wanted something fluffy and white to hang above the mantle (you can see what I mean here). I grabbed a glue gun and started making a wreath, with feathers! I hadn’t intended for it to be a tutorial so the photos are sparse. But you certainly will get the idea and you can make one too.
I grabbed a few supplies. A large foam wreath ring some ribbon, my trusty glue gun and some embellishment.
I had a very cute supervisor watching over every step.
I started by wrapping the wreath form with ribbon, then it was time to add the feathers. Before you think “I’m not about to glue a million white feathers on a wreath”…
I used feather boas!!! I wrapped and glued, and wrapped and glued, and then fluffed and taa daa…it’s covered in feathers!
I had originally planned to use some pearl sprigs. But, I had some gold beaded garland so I wrapped it ( spacing widely) and then instead of a bow I added this fantastic silk poinsettia flower. I used a little extra boa for the wreath hanger, waste not want not 🙂
As we say here at home, that’s a taa daa moment!
Will you grab a feather boa and get started on your feather wreath.
I think this qualifies as a new uses for old things don’t you?
