2 Wreath trio
We all love a decorative wreath, and feathers are the perfect ingredient to add interest and seasonality in many different ways.
First, make a feather-trimmed style with a ready-made feather braid. Cover a metal wreath with hessian and secure with a glue gun. Then wind the braid around the frame, twice, and glue. Cover with single feathers, glued to overlap. Second, fashion a gorgeous foliage wreath with asparagus fern interspersed with feathers. Cover a metal wreath frame with moss, wiring securely into place, then wind the fern around, securing with more wire. Asparagus fern is particularly good for holding its shape and not wilting. Finally, tuck in some feathers at different angles for a freeform, ‘fresh from the hedgerow’ look. Third, make a simple twig and feather version. Use a ready-made grapevine wreath – from a good florists’ suppliers – and tuck in feathers, making sure they’re equally spaced. Hang in place with a leather lace.
