Whimsical Feather Wreath {Frugal Crafts}

Whimsical-Feather-Fairy-WreathA few weeks ago, my daughters decided to build indoor fairy gardens and dream of a Summer day when they can contstruct one outside.  They decided they wanted to welcome the fairies with a wreath, which is where the inspiration for this Feather Wreath was born.  I wanted to help them craft something simple and whimsical and they were thrilled with this delicate little wreath.  It would also make a cute party decoration, wall or door hanging.  This one is simple and economical, as always.

Whimsical-Feather-Fairy-WreathMaterials Needed:

  • 1 pack of feathers.  I found these simple white ones at Joann Fabrics for $1 but you could also use colored ones if desired.
  • Hot Glue
  • Cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Fabric embellishments of your choice
  • String or Ribbon

Instructions:

  1. Draw a circle on your cardboard for your desired wreath’s size.  Cut out the circle and an interior circle to make the base of your wreath.  You could also do this without the cardboard but the feathers are just so delicate we found having a structure and form made for easier crafting.
  2. Whimsical-Feather-Fairy-WreathWith hot glue, begin applying your feathers around your wreath’s form.  Gently place one at a time throughout the wreath until it is covered or until you’ve achieved your desired look.  Tip:  As always, remember hot glue is HOT so if your children are doing this, be sure to assist them with this process.
  3. Glue your fabric embellishments on your wreath.  We used a few hand stitched flower posies.  Those are easily achieved by layering bits of fabric and securing with a button center.  Anything goes.  You can pick up odds and ends at your local fabric store, use buttons, etc!
  4. Allow wreath to dry for a couple of hours.
  5. Hang with a coordinating string and enjoy!
