Valentine's Day Feather Wreath


This year I wanted something fun and soft to add to my Valentine's Day decor - and I think I found it in this feather wreath!





I actually love that the wreath is furry! It adds some whimsy to my Valentine's mini mantel display and would be a fun addition to any door! Here is how I made it:

SUPPLIES:
-wreath form
-feathers (I bought 3 bags at Michaels)
-felt (or spray paint - I liked the soft felt - it made the feathers stick easily!)
-glue
-ribbon
-embelishments

 
 
First, I hot glued and wrapped the wreath with felt, because that's what I had. But you could easily spray paint the wreath whatever color you like.
 
 
After the wreath was covered in felt I started gluing on the feathers. I'm pretty sure I overthought this part, but I layed the feathers out first to make sure I got decent covereage and that they layed nicely around each other.
 
 
Yes, I even overthought my feather choices...
 
 
No broken feathers for this wreath! Only nice fluffy ones! Who knew there were so many choices with feathers? It only takes one bag to cover the wreath, but I used all 3 because I only used the fullest feathers from each bag. (Why, yes, that does make for a lot of extra feathers left over. In case you were wondering.)
 
Here is the final result! It was worth ruffling all those feathers to get this fun and whimsical wreath!!
 
 
 
 
 
 
Now... what to do with all those extra feathers!! Any ideas??

Cute and super sassy! I made a Halloween wreath with a black boa...it was so messy. Once I cut the end off, it was not stop shedding. I bet feathers work better:)
