Let’s Make a Fall Wreath:

With a new season nipping at our heels, I had a little itch to do some crafting. I have a small vase in my kitchen filled with feathers that I have received when ordering bouquets from one of my favorite local flower farmers. I love how they look and thought it would be interesting to put them all together into a wreath … a feather wreath! So that’s exactly what I did. 

Well … almost. Because I love my little collection of feathers so much, I decided to purchase some new feathers instead to put together this fall-inspired DIY feather wreath.

Here’s what I came up with:

Isn’t it beautiful!? I couldn’t be more excited with the end result. It’s natural, colorful, interesting, and perfect for fall.

You’ll notice that besides using feathers, I added in a few other elements. As I was putting together this wreath, I felt it needed a punch of color. Thankfully I had these rust-colored bunny tails on hand along with some of my DIY color-wrapped wheat. I decided to try both of these in the wreath and LOVED how they looked. They added a pop of color and a little whimsy too. Perfection! 

As you can see from the photos, I tried hanging this wreath in a couple of different places in my home. First, I hung it in my office. I loved the rust color against my mint walls. Such a pretty color combination.

I also tried hanging it on the vintage cabinet in my living room. I love wreaths hung here. It looked really pretty, but the colors just weren’t right for this room.

I ended up finding the perfect spot above the TV in my family room. (This is where my vintage ornament wreath hangs for Christmas.) It added the perfect amount of color, texture, and interest. I couldn’t be more pleased!

Here’s what you’ll need:

You only need a few things to assemble this wreath. I’ve gone ahead and linked everything I could for you below. 

  • 14″ wreath form – I found mine HERE. (It looks like they are currently out of stock. Sorry!) A standard grapevine wreath would work here, but I’d recommend something a bit more rustic with branches sticking out. It creates a little more interest and movement. You could also add additional twigs from your yard to create this look with a standard grapevine wreath.

  • dried natural elements – I added in some burnt red bunny tails and dried wheat bundles for a little color and texture. The bunny tails were something I had on hand, but you can find similar ones HERE (orange) and HERE (pink). The wheat was little bundles I made with embroidery floss a few years ago. You can grab that tutorial HERE.
  • hot glue gun – I was able to secure most of my feathers simply by tucking them into the wreath. However, with a few of the feathers and the bunny tails, I used hot glue to keep them more securely in place.
  • wire or pipe cleaner – Adding a piece of wire or pipe cleaner to the back of your wreath will allow you to hang it easily. 

That’s all you need! You’re now ready to assemble everything. Let me walk you through the steps.

How to Assemble: 

I’ll walk you through the process here. I’ve also provided a printable how-to instruction card at the end of this post. 

  1. Begin by tucking feathers into your wreath form. Work around the wreath so that the feathers are going outward in the same direction and not crisscrossing one another. (Similar to the look of a saw blade.)

  1. Tuck in other natural elements like dried flowers, bunny tails, plumes, seed pods, wheat, etc. 
  2. Flip the wreath over and add a little hot glue to any elements that feel loose or unsure.

  1. Create a loop using wire or pipe cleaners. Secure the loop to the back of your wreath near the top. 
  2. Hang and enjoy! 

It’s that simple and the results speak for themselves.

Materials

  • 14 ” wreath form - I found mine HERE.
  • feathers in various lengths and patterns

  • hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • wire or pipe cleaners

Instructions

  • Begin by tucking feathers into your wreath form. Work around the wreath so that the feathers are going outward in the same direction and not crisscrossing one another. (Similar to the look of a saw blade.)
  • As you work, tuck in other natural elements like dried flowers, plumes, seed pods, wheat, etc.

Notes

You can add hot glue as you work. However, I found that most of my feathers didn’t need it since I was able to securely tuck them into the branches of the leaves.

    What a fun craft with a gorgeous end result! I’m a want-to-be crafter and I’m going to try this as my first project. Thank you for sharing!

    Love love love this!

    Wow Michael ! I’ve looked at your blog for several years now. I’ve made your recipes that were always a hit and I can’t wait to make this wreath. Thank you for all your hard work so people like me can copy with 3 teenagers I don’t have time to think outside the box most days. 🙂 I was wanting to make a wreath with my sister. Do you think the feathers you ordered would be enough for 2 wreaths ? It appears so in the picture, but just wanted to make sure. Thank you.

      Hmmm. I would think especially if you’re adding some “extras” into it. My Mom and I both made a wreath together, but I had a few extra feathers on hand.

      xo Michael

    This is beautiful and I love where it landed. You have such an eye for color, the bunny tail and wheat add just the right touch. Need to give this project a try.

      Thank you so much!!

        The feather wreath is such a great change from the usual fall wreaths I have seen this year. I was thinking of making a new one for my covered front porch and this will be perfect. Also plan on making the pumpkin tortellini this weekend. Thanks so much for your ideas and recipes 😊.
