Ready to glam up your Valentine's Day decor? I've got the perfect project for you. It's fancy, easy, fairly inexpensive, and a little bit unusual-- the Red Feather Wreath. This was a project that my mom did first, then I followed her creative lead (and used her leftover feathers). I ended up having everything else I needed for this wreath, so it cost me nothing!
Here's what you will need, besides a few hours and a little bit of patience.
-Red fabric. I used five 2-3" strips, so you should be good with about 1/2 a yard.
-Red feathers. Mine are from Hobby Lobby, and I used two packages.
-Ribbon for hanging.
First step, cut your fabric into 2-3" strips if you haven't already. Plug your glue gun in, and get wrapping those strips around the wreath form, gluing as you go.
When you get all the way around (you will get there faster on the inside of the wreath), slide the stems underneath the feathers that are already there and glue in place. Since each feather has only been glued down halfway, you should easily be able to fill any other holes you might have where you can see the fabric underneath.

Also, here's a little announcement that I already made on Facebook: Since I received such an overwhelming response on my Valentine's Subway Art Printable, I will be doing at least one free printable on the blog per month. If you have any requests for themes, quotes, art, etc. that you would like to see in a printable, leave me a comment or send me an email. Most of the printables will probably be seasonal, but I'd love to hear what trends you would like to see.
