After spotting these gorgeous feathers a couple of weeks back in my local fabric shop I knew I had to have them! I’m a little bit obsessed with making garlands (so much quicker and more fun than proper bunting I think) so a feather garland seemed like the perfect thing for me to make!
This DIY is really really quick to make, I think the thing that took me the longest was threading the needle!
For this you will need:
Needle (Use a large one such as a darning needle, bakers twine is thick)
Something to hang your feather garland with. I used washi tape as it’s easy to move around and …err… I love washi tape.
Measure out how long you want your garland to be and cut your bakers twine appropriately. Near one end tie a knot, this is where your first feather will go. Thread your needle with the bakers twine and then ‘sew’ through your feather. Be a bit careful here as they can split.
Move your feather along to where your knot is and then tie another knot the other side of your feather. This is to stop the feathers sliding down the bakers twine once you have hung your feather garland on your wall.
Repeat this along the length of your bakers twine, spacing out your feathers. I would recommend ensuring that they are all facing the same direction so that they will hand nicely against your wall.
Done! Attach your lovely new feather garland to your wall using washi tape or similar. At the moment this is hanging above some pictures in my hallway which I love but it may make its way into my daughters room when she moves in there? Who knows! Either way I think it looks great.
Do let me know if you make this and if you could tweet me a picture that would be even better, I’d love to see it!
