2 Wreath trio

Country Homes & Interiors - - GET CREATIVE -

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.
