It is so thrilling to find something you love and then put your own spin on it! When searching for pinspiration for a Christmas craft, I came upon this Pantone Emerald Green Fall Feather Wreath that I was just dying over! My friend and I wanted to make Christmas wreaths together, and she thought we could still find a way to make these seasonal wreaths for the holiday and she was right! While I was married to the emerald green color and wanted to incorporate peacock feathers, it just fell together when I found a bejeweled peacock feather ornament at Hobby Lobby!!! It has a subtle starburst effect which is a nod to my love of mid-century mod decor too!
This was my process:
- Wrap the ribbon around the wreath, hot gluing it periodically.
- Wrap the gold sequin trim around the wreath in the designated space.
- Hot glue the Christmas ornament with desired placement.
- Hang it on the door or wall to admire it!
The sequins make it side-heavy so it rotated to that side, but when I hung it on the wreath hanger I positioned the feathers down toward the lower left corner.
My Shopping List:
- 2″ x 4 yd. “Tropic” Grosgrain Ribbon – Michael’s
- Foam Wreath Form – Michael’s
- Gold Wreath Hanger – Michael’s
- Gold Sequin Trim – Hobby Lobby (but after I bought it, I saw they had it for 50% off at JoAnn Craft the same day)
- Bejeweled Peacock Feather Ornament – Hobby Lobby
The Inspiration Wreath:
Since these are fun fall colors, I think I will hang my wreath during autumn each year and rock it through the New Year because of the jewels and sparkles! But what if you want to make a Christmas-exclusive wreath? Try my crafty friend’s Christmas take on this project:
