We’ve recently noticed a craft store staple popping up in various holiday home decor and Christmas craft projects: feather boas! Despite their obvious glitz and glam, feather boas can look downright at home when used to decorate your family’s Christmas tree, mantle or another space in your holiday abode.
Susan at Between Naps on the Porch is dreaming of a white Christmas. She has replaced the typical green holiday tree with a feather tree from her local craft store. You could make this look your on your own by wrapping a wire-framed or white artificial tree in feather boas for a soft, luxurious texture. Elegant crystal glass bulbs and white lights complete the look.
Chris at Just a Girl shares this festive feather wreath, which doubles as a fall and winter season staple. Grab any wreath form and and glue gun to tackle this DIY wreath. She used skinny feather boas in white to get the look.
Have you ever crafted with feathers or tinsel for the holidays? Good Ideas for You shares lots of feather boa crafts, including this pair of topiary trees. To make this craft, start with a styrofoam cone and wrap with a strand of feathers or tinsel, pinning or hot gluing along the way. Top with a star or tree ornament of your choice!
Finally, what’s more fun than holiday decorating with your pet? We love this ugly Christmas sweater craft featured at Sew Doggy Style. The classic dog sweater gets jazzed up with a feather boa, mini ornaments and Mardi Gras beads. Happy holidays!
