Elegant Feather Christmas Wreath

Today, you can find me guest posting at Design Dazzle as part of their Christmas Wonderful guest series.
I'm sharing my Elegant feather Christmas Trees on Design Dazzle
and since I love Christmas so much, I wanted to give you, my readers, a bonus tutorial and show you how I made my feather wreath!
In keeping with true Holy Craft form, these elegant feather decorations just look like they cost a lot of money, when in reality each one cost less than $3 to make!

The Dollar Tree sells these round foam wreath bases.
They are quite thick, so I cut them in half {with a knife}.
And since I was putting white feathers on them, I spray painted each wreath form white.

Foam tends to break easily, 
so I made a paper backing out of cardstock to help keep the form from bending.

I started by using my hot glue gun to glue feathers to the inside of the wreath, 
then I moved to the outside main part 
and finally to the final outside ring.
Some of the feathers I was able to poke into the Styrofoam, others I glued down.
More is better.
You don't want any of your foam wreath showing.

I just love how these Christmas trees and wreath turned out don't you?!
My favorite part is that they look expensive, but they really weren't!

Thanks to all my new Design Dazzle readers for joining me today.
Grab a cup of coffee and stick around!
