  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Download and print project template onto the various pieces of cardstock listed under supplies (or whatever colors you chose). Cut out each feather.
  • 2
    Use craft knife to trim the details from the feathers. Score down the center of each feather, from tip to top.
  • 3
    Use your fingers to carefully fold the feathers along the score line to give them shape.
  • 4
    Trim fringes into the edges of each feather for extra dimension. Then start layering them up randomly around your wreath base, evenly spaced and at varying angels all the way around, and securing them in place with a hot glue gun. Allow drying, and then hang on the wall with a length of thick coordinating ribbon.
  • 5
    Choose beads from the packages and thread the beads onto your thin wire. Crimp the ends of wire or bend the ends of the wire around to stop the beads from coming off the wire.
  • 6
    Wrap the beaded wire around the wreath.
