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.
