The feather wreath was the easiest of them all, but followed similar steps as the other two.
These are the supplies I used (all purchased at Michael's):
• 6” Styrofoam wreath • 6’ white feather boa • 1 ½” wide silver glitter ribbon • Sparkly red bird clip-on embellishments
The first step was the wrap the Styrofoam with the silver ribbon. I stapled the ribbon to the back of the wreath. Then, I wrapped the ribbon, and stapled it again once it was completely wrapped. I chose to do this step so that little glimpses of silver would show through the feathers.
I then did the same thing with the feather boa (staple, wrap, staple).
Once the boa was wrapped around the wreath, I found the perfect spot for the bird. He was easy to attach because he has a little clip on the bottom. I used a piece of silver yarn to hang the wreath from the window pane and voilà, it was complete!
It was super easy, and I love the softness it adds to the mantel. By simply changing out the embellishment, I will also be able to use this wreath for other holidays.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!
