Real and imitation feathers work well in many craft projects. Buy feathers to embellish accessories such as tote bags, picture frames, accent pillows and purses. Purchase colourful craft feathers to create costume garments and accessories such as bird outfits, angel wings or Native American headdress costumes. You can also buy feathers for craft projects such as the Martha Stewart website project, "Feather Christmas Tree," which uses white turkey feathers. No matter the craft project or whether you are an individual crafter or arts and crafts teacher, you can purchase craft feathers in several ways.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Shop online wholesale and retail websites to purchase feathers. Online craft and feather supply sites are excellent resources for finding exotic or unusual feathers for crafting. Look for turkey quills, pheasant tail feathers, rooster feathers and feather plumes.

  2. 2

    Shop your local craft supply store to purchase feathers for craft projects. Craft speciality stores often carry a large variety of genuine and faux feathers. Look for ostrich and peacock feathers as well as imitation feathers in many colours.

  3. 3

    Buy feathered accessories from costume stores, thrift stores, flea markets and garage sales. Remove and use real or imitation feathers from costume boas, hats and other accessories for your feather craft projects.

Tips and warnings

  • Purchase individual feathers for small craft projects. Purchase bulk bags of feathers for large crafts or class craft projects.
