DIY Feather Wall Art

DIY Feather Wall Art

Maria Provenzano shows how to take a beautiful African Juju headdress and turn it into wall art.
MATERIALS:
  • Feather trim
  • Woven placemats
  • Natural rope
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Scissors
  • Desired hanging hardware
OPTIONAL:
  • Cardboard
  • X-acto knife

INSTRUCTIONS:


1. First you need to create the appearance of a concave base. Add a ring of rope inset about 1” from the edge of your base, this will prop up the feathers and create a 3d effect.


PRO-TIP: to create a large base, cut a circle out of cardboard with a slit through half the center. To concave the base, fold the flap of one side onto the other and secure with hot glue.


2. Glue on your first layer of feather trim along the inside edge of the rope ring you glued on.


3. About 1” inset from the first layer of trim add another ring of rope. Add the feather trim.


4. Continue to add rope and feather trim in concentric circles until you reach the middle.


5. Glue individual feathers in the center to cover any of the base left showing.


6. Hang as desired and enjoy!
