This Christmas, as you saw in my Handcrafted Holidays video, I decorated my tree with a bird theme in a variety of gold and silver tones. The paper feathers are part of the detail of the tree and to add a little extra bling, I used some pretty gold and silver glitter on the tips of my paper feather ornaments. The feathers are so pretty that today I made this feather garland to coordinate with the tree. I tested several methods and the one that works best is what I am going to share with you today which is using a craft spray glue. My favorite glitter for these feather’s is Martha Stewart’s fine glitter that you can find in any craft store. Below is the step-by-step tutorial as well as the PDF pattern and the Silhouette pattern for these feathers. Please note that the Silhouette template is for the cutting machine and will not open without that software. Enjoy! ~ Lia

This just gorgeous! Do you glue the feathers in place on the string, or are they hanging loosely?
Thank you! I did let these hang loose, but have glued them down on other projects when I didn’t want them to move around 🙂

So many uses for paper feathers! The garland is one of my favorites too.

Thank you so much for the silhouette file for the feathers! My daughter and I have a special fondness of feathers. We often exchange them in photos as we see them randomly in our day. I’m off to make a garland for each of us!
That is such a cute exchange! Enjoy the garland.
