Paper Feather Wreath...

When I saw how to make a paper feather wreath on Thistlewood Farm,
I loved it.
 I decided to give it a try since I already had everything I needed to make one.
(a grapevine wreath, some sort of paper, a glue gun and glue sticks)

Years ago I bought an old hymnal at the thrift store and have used it for many projects,
including decoupaging the top of my desk with the pages.
I cut out the paper feathers from the hymnal pages.

When I look at my wreath compared to the one KariAnne made,
I think I made mine too full.
At least it was free and a fun and simple project to make,
imperfect as mine is!

still following,



  1. I think it is perfect.


    1. Thank you! KariAnne's is just a little "more perfect"!

  2. How fun. I love it. I'm determined to do a bit of crafting during spring break!
    BTW, I'm catching up on your posts and have appreciated your words this week so much; thank you for your faithful sharing!

    1. Thanks so much, Ginger. I hope your spring break is very relaxing and refreshing. You're on the home stretch now!

  3. Hey Elisabeth, your DIY is magnificently!
    Best, Andy

    1. Thank you, Andy! I enjoyed giving it a try, even if it's not quite perfect!

  4. Hi Elizabeth! I have a dear friend who is a musician...this would be such an awesome gift for her. I love the repurposing of the music sheets too. I'll have to keep my eyes open for books like that at resales.

    1. It's so easy and doesn't take a lot of time. Old hymnals are pretty easy to find at the Goodwill or Salvation Army. I hope you do make one for your friend. If you do, let me know!

    1. Thanks, Lynda. It's simple and not too time consuming. One would look great in your lovely home!

  6. Your wreath is just right! I love where you put it.
