We’ve shared Gloria’s love of white and gold decor previously. Her place is a great reflection of her style. For Christmas, she decided to use lots of white, gold and a little blush. She wanted a feather wreath to hang on a large mirror in her living room. Rather than buying one, it was time for a DIY project! She’s happy with how it turned out and it looks great hanging on her mirror.
White Feather Wreath
It only takes a few supplies to make this feather wreath. I used a 18′ styrofoam wreath form, one bag of 45″ by 60″ batting, four packs of white feathers, one package of gold tipped feathers, pearl head pins and hot glue. I only had to buy the batting and feathers, so this was a very inexpensive wreath to make. I bought the white feathers and batting at Walmart and the gold tipped feathers at Michaels.
I began by cutting the batting into strips. Each strip was about three to four inches wide. It doesn’t need to be exact. I wrapped it around the wreath form and secured it in place with pearl head pins.
Once it was completely covered, I placed it on a wreath hanger to add the feathers and to make sure the batting was secured well.
Starting at the center point of the bottom of the wreath, I began hot gluing feathers in place.
I added them three at a time, going all the way around the wreath. I tried to add them to go along with the curve of the wreath form. As more feathers were added, they were tucked beneath the previous layer.
Adding all of the feathers was a little time consuming, but it needed to have a nice, full look to it. It took three layers of feathers to get it full enough.
After adding feathers, I checked it by shaking it a little to make sure they were going to stay in place. Some of them were not completely secured, so I added a few pearl head pins to keep them in place.
I added a small loop of ribbon to the back on the wreath for hanging. It’s hot glued and pinned in place.
While we both thought it looked great, we decided to add a few accent feathers that have gold tips. These give it a little more interest and the gold ties in well with her decor.
Living in Charleston, we aren’t likely to have a White Christmas, but that doesn’t stop Gloria from creating one at her place. The faux fur stockings look great hanging on either side of the mirror. She bought those at At Home. The white feather wreath goes perfectly with her decor.
If you look closely, you can see Gloria’s white Christmas tree in the reflection on the mirror. We’ll be sharing that and her other gold and white decor soon.
