Make a statement with a stunning, chic feather Easter Wreath in only 30 minutes! This easy DIY Feather Wreath only costs about $25 and is the perfect home accent!
I remember as a kid, we always looked forward to Easter. Christmas, Easter and our birthday! Those were the big holidays we just couldn’t wait to arrive.
My mom always allowed us to help with the decorating. I always thought it was because she was an awesome mom who loved how creative I got decorating.
Well, then I found out the truth. She was TIRED! After nine kids and doing all the decorating herself year after year after year, she was DONE. So she turned it over to the kids. If we wanted decorations for the various holidays we had to do it.
I may have been the one that stuck with decorating the longest. But even I got bored of the same old decorations year after year.
Easy Feather Easter Wreath Decoration
Now as a mom, myself, my kids want to see holiday decorations! But I’m just like my mom. I’m TIRED. Tired of all the work. And tired of the same decorations year after year.
So, the best way to remedy that is with something simple! Make new decorations! But because we are tired moms, it needs to be SIMPLE, easy and FAST.
Nothing spurs me on to help decorate for holidays more than having new decorations! The easiest is always simply adding a fun new Easter Wreath to your door!
But if you want fancy and chic you are looking at a lot of money coming out of your pocket. Or are you?
I saw a lot of fancy Feather Easter Wreaths in the home decor stores and thought, “I can make that for so much less!” Now I was on a mission!
You are going to love just how simple I made this wreath! And kept the cost low too! I mean, what can be better than under $30 and done in 30 minutes?
Only 30 minutes on this craft still leaves me enough time to sit and indulge in a secret Mommy treat, a cold Dr. Pepper, and get in some reading of my favorite Dystopian Novels or Regency Romance while little Rose is napping!
But, it looks like it took much longer to make! That is my secret to almost all of my crafts. Make it look fancier and harder than it truly is! Then the neighbors won’t know just how lazy I truly am!
Ok, maybe they will when they read this..but still! I love when things look much harder than they truly are. Then you have a fun little secret and everyone else is left thinking you are the so crafty and creative!
So block out your 30 minutes, grab the few supplies and come make this insanely easy DIY Feather Easter Wreath with me!

What you will need is
- 12-13″ white foam wreath
- 6 foot long white Feather Boa (if your boa isn’t thick you might need 2)
- 1 pack Greening Pins
- 1 Easter Egg Wall Garland By Celebrate It®
- Nest ornament (I got mine from Hobby Lobby) but you can find lots of options for Nest Ornament on Etsy.
- hot glue
- white ribbon for hanging hook
You are going to love just how easy it is to throw this wreath together! It’s super easy even for a beginning crafter. Because there isn’t a lot of steps and not much is permanent!
Step 1 – A clean start. Remove the labels and stickers from the supplies.
Step 2 – A strong attachment. Attach the end of the feather boa to the wreath by using a greening pin. You don’t need to glue anything at this point. Simply lay the feather boa end across the back of the wreath and push the greening pin in to hold the boa in place.
Step 3 – The Feather Boa. Wrap the feather boa around the wreath. Every few wraps, add another greening pin to hold the feather boa in place. Work your way around the foam wreath adjusting the wraps until the entire wreath is equally covered in the feather boa.
Add a new greening pin to secure the end of the feather boa on the back of the wreath near the beginning. Add a few more greening pins as you desire to secure the feather boa around the wreath.
Step 4 – The Decorative Egg garland! Lay out the Decorative egg garland string around the wreath. Adjusting it to lay as you like. It may overlap a little and that is ok. Just adjust it to look nice. Once you have it laid as you like, attach and secure it into place around the wreath, using the greening pins.
Step 5 – Add the nest. Just like the decorative egg garland, lay the nest on the wreath. Try different positions until you found where you like it best. Now you will secure the nest with hot glue.
Simply apply a liberal amount of hot glue to the bottom of the nest. Then gently move the feather boa to the side and place the nest onto the foam wreath to form a strong bond with the hot glue.
Hold it in place while the glue dries. Then fluff the feather boa back into place around the nest.
Step 6 – Add a hook. Take a small strip of grosgrain white ribbon. You can guess how long you want it. This is going to be made into the hanging hook. So if you want a large hanging hook, make it large. I used about 4-5 inches because I only want a small one that wouldn’t be very visible.
Fold it over on itself to form a loop at the top and hot glue the ends together. Then attach it with hot glue to the back of the wreath. I always like my hooks extra secure, so you can add an extra greening pin to secure the hanging hook if you like.
Step 7- FLUFF. Lastly, you will go over the wreath and fluff the feathers into place. You will also adjust the garland. Since it is made from positional wires, you can fluff out some of the eggs and leaves to stand farther out from the wreath than other ones. Just adjust all the pieces until you are satisfied.
Hang your DIY Feather Easter Wreath and now you are done!
I hung my DIY Feather Easter Wreath on my pantry door. It’s a HALF sized door, so it might make the wreath look a little bigger than it actually is. But if you want bigger, no problem. Just get a bigger foam wreath and 2 feather boas! Use the same steps, but you will end up with a larger wreath.
Simple as that you have a stunning Chic Feather Easter Wreath in about 30 minutes! Yet it will be the talk of the street when you hang this on your door!
No one will believe it only took you 30 minute and costs about $25!
