Here are a few examples that don’t require too much additional explanation.

How to Make a Wall Decoration with Feathers
The second decorative approach with feathers is more complex, but it does not require particular skills or specific equipment either. It is a kind of wall decoration inspired by dream catchers that brings Boho chic charm to any space in the house. It’s super fun to make too, and you will only need:
- white feathers
- black pheasant feathers with white polka dots
- gold spray paint
- suede cord
- round polished wooden stick or driftwood stick
To begin, spray the tips of the white feathers with gold spray paint and let them dry completely. Of course, if gold isn’t your thing, you can get creative and use any other colour you like. For example, if it’s a wall decoration for the baby’s room, pastel pink and sky blue work perfectly.
Next, tie both ends of the suede string to each end of the wooden stick for hanging later. Tie a piece of suede shoelace to the stem of a feather and cut off the excess, as shown in the photo collage.
Tie the other end of the suede cord to the centre of the stick, making sure the knot is facing the back and it is not visible. Move from the middle to both ends, shortening the string of each feather a little.
Add the small polka dot feathers between the white feathers, cutting shorter laces. Finally, hang your feather decoration on the wall and admire it with pleasure!

Decorative Door Wreath with Peacock Feathers
The last feather decor themed tutorial seems the most complex of all, but in fact it is only at first glance. To make this stunning fall door wreath, you will need:
- wreath in wicker or vine branches to decorate with a diameter of approximately 30 cm
- peacock feathers and other feathers of your choice
- hot glue gun and sticks
- small decorative objects (optional)
Prepare your materials and plug in the hot glue gun to heat up. Add a dot of glue to the hard end of a feather and insert it at an angle somewhere between the crown branches.
Repeat the process in one direction all the way around the wreath, adding glue and overlapping the feathers a little as you glue them to the hoop.
Cover the wreath completely with peacock feathers and add other types of feathers or decorative materials of your choice to give it a special style. Depending on the season and the desired effect, use leaves, flowers, other natural materials, etc.
