[Make] Felt Feathers

Continuing on with my feather theme (also seen here), I decided to make a few out of felt.  Very easy and something that can be done on the quick.  These can be used as a gift topper, strung together as a garland, or even arranged into a simple wreath.

Make your feathers...

the simpler the notches, the better

in a variety of sizes..
these measure 3.5 in, 4 in and 4.5 in

I decided to make mine into a bouquet.
For a bouquet, glue the feathers to wires of varying lengths...
i used a hot glue gun to attach the wire to the feather

Place them in a vase and arrange... Ta da!
do you like my beaded vase?  
it's an upcycled martinelli apple juice bottle... 
still have several of those floating around from a birthday party.

and sitting pretty in our kitchen window.

Hope you're having a nice weekend!
