Feather DIY Roundup

Time for some DIY goodness, brideys! And in line with our boho bent this month, I thought it was high time I rounded up some feathery goodness for your weddings. Feathers make a great motif for boho celebrations, and there are so many ways you can include them – plus, I adore the whole gold-dipped feather trend, which is perfect for boho luxe! Of course, make sure you source the feathers responsibly, and remember that you can always use paper instead of real (some of the tutorials below cover paper feathers, and even clay ones, which I love). Let’s go!

1. Feather garlands are the boho bunting. This one gets an extra dose of glitter. Via Green Wedding Shoes (DIY by Smitten on Paper)

4. Instead of a garland, how about a feather wreath? This is too gorgeous! Via Make Haus

5. This gold dipped feather brooch would be great for a boutonniere – for a truly organic boho look, you could do the same thing without the gold. Via Michel Eng
