DIY Peacock Feather Wreath
To fancy up my porch for Fall, I decided I wanted a wreath on the front door. But being the sometimes-thrifty girl I am, I realized I already had a wreath that I could use.
Remember it from my mantel last spring? I didn’t want a giant wreath on my door because we always bump into it when we go in and out of the house and I kind of didn’t want to overpower the beauty of the door, so the size of the wreath I already had was great. And, I loved the more unique square shape. Good enough! Almost…
I just wanted to add a little something to it, maybe something pretty but kind of scary and whimsical all at the same time.
You know, pretty-scary-whimsical wreaths are perfect for Fall. Right? Yeah.
What vision came to mind? Peacock feathers. They are absolutely beautiful, but kind of feel like spooky little eyes watching you.
Bwwahhaaahhaa, subtle Halloween perhaps?
So, I ran out to the forest and plucked me some feathers just like the pilgrims would have. Well, not really. I got these at Michaels Craft, just as pretty but less hassle.
And in my typical NOT DIY DIVA-ish fashion, I just set the feathers on the existing moss wreath and pinned them down with floral arranging pins, also found at Michaels. And then…..well, there are no more steps. That was IT!

So have you plucked any feathers for decorating or put together any Fall wreaths this year?
