I have curated some of the best feather crafts and DIYs around. Some of which use real feathers in crafts and DIYs. Others are tutorials for creating faux feathers out material such as denim, paper and leather.
I’ve always found feathers fascinating. I still get excited when I come across a beautiful bird feather on my walks. I think it is the symbolism of flight and freedom that is one of the appeals of feathers.
Birds molt feathers regularly that’s why you often see them on the ground. Depending on the species, birds may shed all their worn or damaged feathers or just some in a staggered fashion. This is to make way for fresh new plumage.
Also, there is nothing else like them in nature and they come in so many wonderful colours and patterns. Especially the feathers of tropical birds, peacocks and ostriches. These beautiful ornate feathers have been used as decoration and ornamentation for centuries.
You can find some wonderful vintage illustrations of feathers on Pictureboxblue that would look great framed in any wall gallery. Feathers have been a big inspiration for me with my home decoration.
Hopefully, you will find a fun feather craft from the following collection to inspire you.
Favourite Feather Crafts
It’s hard to pick a favourite feather craft but I do love homemade feathers, whether it is out of fabric scraps or paper. They can then be used as wall hangings, hung in a garland, used as table decorations or even present toppers.
