One of the greatest parts of the holidays in our home is the amount of crafting that goes on. My favorite go-to craft is making a wreath. It’s quick, easy, and the design is limitless. To top all that off, making it yourself can usually save you a good amount of money, and who couldn’t use a few extra dollars in their pocket? Especially around this time!
I’m sharing an easy to make grapevine feather wreath tutorial with y’all today because nothing screams “Thanksgiving” to me more than feathers. Honestly, I think it’s so pretty you could leave it out through the entire holiday season!
Here’s what you’ll need to complete this project yourself:
- Grapevine Wreath (We are using a 14″ wreath in this tutorial.)
- White Feathers ( 3 Packs of Creatology™ Feathers)
- Brown Feathers (1 Pack of Creatology™ Feathers, Pheasant)
- Glue Gun
- Glue Sticks
This is the easiest wreath making technique ever! All you have to do is add a dab of hot glue to the end of the feather and apply it to the grapevine wreath. Start with your white feathers first. Tip: Most feathers bend so try to keep the bend facing the same direction. It’s more pleasing to the eyes to see them follow a pattern. Repeat this step until you have completely covered the front part of your wreath. Once that’s done, you might see some bald spots showing so go back and fill those in with your remaining feathers. When that’s done it’s time to add your brown feathers into the mix. I didn’t want to overwhelm the wreath so I chose to add only a few of them spacing them evenly around the wreath.
That’s it! See, I told you it was easy! All that’s left is to find the perfect place to hang it up and enjoy!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, and that it has inspired you to attempt it for yourself! I’d like to thank Rebekah for inviting me to share it with y’all today! If you’d like to see more of my craft tutorials, home decorating ideas, and much more please visit me at Around the Watts House.
