I posted this feather garland on instagram and there was a lot of good feedback so I thought I would share how I made it.
The reason I feel like I am cheating is that the feather template isn't mine.
I used the template and tutorial for making the individual feathers from this post by Lia Griffith.
I cut mine out of plain white card and old book paper glued to card to give it a bit of extra rigidity.
I then gathered all the feathers I had created and put them together in groups of three. No rhyme or reason here. I just layered them up in ways that made me happy.
I added a dab of glue to the end of each to secure them together.
Once I had enough groups of three I tied them with a knot onto a piece of garden twine.
The feather template is beautifully designed so there is enough of a "tail" on the feathers to tie them onto the twine without glue.
I think these would look so lovely at a party strung up with fairy lights.
Whimsical and light they flutter in my room above my desk. Another garland to add to the collection.
