12 DIYs of Christmas ~ Day 6 ~ DIY Feather Wreath

Why hello there, lovelies!  After working a 17 hour day yesterday, I decided that I shouldn't have to work today.  I think that's some sound logic there, right?  Anyways, I am spending the day being as productive as I can, which means lots of blogging, cleaning, decorating, wrapping presents, etc.

Today's DIY is actually one I made 10 years ago, I remember because it was my daughter's first Christmas. I'll be sharing some of the ornaments I made then too.  My theme was a sexy white and red tree and decor :)  So of course I needed a sexy wreath, naturally.  While I don't have the steps documented (sorry!) this was so easy that it really doesn't require much.

{More after the jump}

Here's what you'll need:

  • Styrofoam wreath form (a few dollars at any craft store)
  • 2 feather boas
  • Hot glue
  • Ornament (if desired) 

That's the side view of the wreath.  All you need to do is apply hot glue to the wreath form, and wind your feather boa around and around, achieving the desired effect.  Once done, I straightened out a hook from an ornament (I've been doing my Dipped in Snowflakes Ornaments for quite some time, too!) and stuck it into the styrofoam wreath.  I used some clear beading string to create a hanger for this, and that's it!

I love how these feathered wreaths are huge now, and my DIY is now 10 years old!  So if you're in need of a last minute wreath (a sexy one, too!), then run by your local craft store and pick up these supplies!
