Once you have a fluffy white wreath, it’s time to add the beautiful iridescent peacock eye feathers. I love the combination of teals, emeralds and golds on a pure white background! It’s so much fun to add this vibrant surprise to the simplicity of this wreath. Just as I did with the boa, I spaced the peacock feathers around the wreath before attaching with my hot glue gun (only had a dot of glue to each feather because the feather’s are so beautiful when they’re whimsical).
My little girlie girl and I totally LOVE birds!!! Guess what she chose for us to study for science this year!?!? Yep, Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day! In fact, little B’s been asking for a pet bird for quite some time, but cleaning the fish bowl clean and the dog bowl full is my limit! Instead of the real deal, I choose to accessorize accordingly! This Fall, I knew exactly what I wanted hanging on my front door (and in fact you’ll soon see, throughout the house). Feathers, especially of the Peacock variety!
A trip to Hobby Lobby confirmed my decision. Feathers were on sale for half off, so the boa was $3.50. I found a peacock bird with five peacock eye feathers as it’s tail and used a 40% off coupon, so all the peacock eye feathers together were 4.20, and a wreath I purchased a while back with a 40% off coupon was $2.39. Total spent: $10.09.
I heated up my glue gun and with a dot of glue, attached one end of the boa to the wreath. Loosely I wrapped the rest of the boa around to ensure I spaced it right before continuing to glue the boa in position. Basically, I ended up gluing every 4 inches until I made a full circle around. (As you’re working with this on the table, you may see some styrofoam still, but that’s okay. When the wreath is hung upright, the feathers will drop and spread over the entire surface, and you can always add a little glue at that point to ensure styrofoam doesn’t show.
Tie a ribbon around your wreath and hang it on your Door Jewelry!!! Beautiful and a perfect spotlight for the season of eating turkeys, studying early American history (especially, Native Americans, and remembering all the reasons we have to be thankful!!!
