My White Feather Wreath

After running a few errands last Saturday, I was actually rushing to a hair appointment when I decided to steal a few minutes and run into my friendly neighborhood Goodwill.  I love going to thrift stores.  You never know what you might find or be inspired by.  Anyway, I was actually looking for a jean jacket for an upcoming project.  No luck?  But on the way out I spied a Christmas feather wreath.

Here’s why you should not sleep on thrift stores, not even especially during the holidays.

I picked it up the wreath to take a look.  (BTW: Always pick it up, before someone else does.  You can always put it back.)  It was a white boa feather wreath.  There were no stains or obvious missing feathers creating any bald spots.  It looked quite expensive so when the timer on my phone went off, I decided I would get the wreath to start off my holiday decorations.  I thought the wreath would look perfect hanging in front of the window in my bedroom.

Don’t you LOVE IT?
I was right!  It looks great.  I do have plans to maybe string some white lights just to give it some nighttime drama.
Lights would give the wreath DRAMA!

DRAMA IN THE DUPE

But here is the really great part; after gazing at the wreath for awhile I thought it looked like something I might find at ZGallerie (my favorite store – for inspiration).  So I did some research and look what I found – it is almost exactly like the one ZGallerie sells.
The only difference the ZGallerie wreaths’ feather tips are highlighted.  Oh and my thrift store score was $7.99 and ZGallerie’s version a whopping $46.00.  That’s a $38.00 savings!
I love when that happens.  Can you say WINNING!

MAKE ONE!

Yes!  You can make one.  Even though I found my feather wreath at the thrift store and saved BIG BUCKS (well sort of), you can not only recreate the wreath but the savings too.

Making a wreath like this is probably one of the easiest DIY projects that anyone can do.  Really!  You can do this! 

I almost feel silly leaving this info.  But just in case you don’t believe me or you want a STEP-BY-STEP for creating your own feather wreath, Rust and Sunshine shows how to make a gorgeous feather wreath using (of all things) a cardboard for the base.
