Start with an inexpensive pine wreath from the grocery store and then weave in feathers of natural colors.
Look to the beauty of nature for your wreath inspiration this year. We paired wispy feathers with classic Christmas greenery for a take on the traditional pine wreath that's both easy to make and easy on your wallet. If this is too simple for your tastes, you can tie a ribbon to the wreath for extra pizazz. We've also included ideas for feather wreaths with faux paper and yarn feathers, if you don't wish to use real ones.
You'll need a bag of feathers for this project, which are available at crafts supply stores. We chose feathers in a natural palette for a rustic look, but feel free to use colorful dyed ones to match your decor theme or style. We used an inexpensive store-bought pine wreath as the base. For a wreath that will last year after year, choose a faux version.
Figure out how you want to arrange the feathers around your wreath, then tuck them in at intervals. If they aren't staying in place, use floral wire or a drop of hot glue to attach them more securely. If desired, add a ribbon bow at the top of the wreath for extra flair. Now it's ready to hang on your front door to welcome guests!
Love this look, but want something a little different? Try a wreath sans greenery and made entirely from feathers and pinecones, or make your own (faux) feathers out of yarn or glittery paper to hang on a plain grapevine wreath.
