Last month I made this paper feather wreath for my fall harvest party. I loved it so much that I used it again for my Thanksgiving mantel. Today I am sharing a tutorial on how to make the paper feather wreath so that you too can use it to decorate for Fall!
First, start with a styrofoam wreath. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out 3 different sizes of feathers. The largest feather was about 5 inches tall, the medium sized feather was about 4.25 inches tall and the smallest feather was about 3.5 inches tall. Start with the largest size feather and start hot glueing them side by side around the wreath. Do one round of the biggest feather. Don’t glue the feather completely flat. Only glue the bottom part of the feather so that your wreath will have volume and dimension.
The next round will be the medium size feather. Glue the medium size feather side by side staggering them between the large feathers. Last round is the smallest feather. Glue a round of small feathers side by side staggering them in between the medium feathers. Continue this pattern until the wreath is completely covered. I used about 7 sheets of 12×12 paper (I got the paper on sale for $0.30 each so it only cost me a little over $2 to make the wreath).
I am enamored with my paper feather wreath! I really like the pattern and color of the paper I chose. If I were to do it all again the only thing I would do differently is that I would use double sided paper so that you can’t see the white backside. Other than that though, I wouldn’t change a thing!
