Wreaths are often used to provide a welcome to guests and family and as decoration for a particular celebration or event. While wreaths made of greenery are the most common, a wreath can actually be made out of just about anything. One favoured material for autumn wreaths are using feathers along with a few key autumn items. Pheasant feathers are readily available to highlight such wreaths.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Spray a grapevine wreath form with spray adhesive. Press green and brown feather boas into the wreath form trying to cover the underlying form. Depending on the size of the wreath form, you may need more than one boa.

  2. 2

    Position loose feathers around the wreath to fill in gaps and to add interest. It is a good idea to select the wreath orientation so you shape your design toward the top or bottom of the wreath.

  3. 3

    Weave your larger pheasant feathers into the grapevine. Use floral wire if necessary to keep the feathers in position.

  4. 4

    Add small pinecones to add more texture to the wreath.

  5. 5

    Hang the wreath using an old leather belt. This will add to the rustic charm of the wreath.
