It really is the little things that make a dramatic and unexpected impact!  Who knew that you could turn a feather boa into a gorgeous wreath for your wedding!?  A while back we did an inspiration post on aisle decor.  I loved the feathered wreath that Pavaune from Invited shared with us for that aisle decor post.  She made the wreath for Melinda’s wedding out of a feathered boa!

As a bonus, we have Pavaune back to share with us how she made this feathered wreath to hang on the aisle pews at Melinda’s wedding.  For around $10 (that’s right, $10!) you can make a feathered wreath in three easy steps using foam, a feathered boa and a few pins.  Lisa Marie from Sweet Tea Photography was able to capture a few images of Pavaune putting the wreath together.

Items needed:

  • 12″ foam wreath
  • 6′ white feather boa (preferably 80 grams)
  • White corsage pins
  • White satin ribbon

Instructions for DIY feathered wreath:

1.  Fluff feather boa to ensure maximum fullness.

2.  Take one corsage pin, and pin the cord of the boa to the interior of the foam wreath.

3.  Wrap the boa around the wreath making sure that you can not see the foam wreath through the feathers.

4.  Once fully covered, take the other corsage pin and pin the end of the cord to the interior of the foam wreath.

5.  Take an 18″ length of ribbon and tie around the feathers at the top of the wreath to hang.
