Fourth of July Feather Boa Wreath TutorialSupplies

  • Attach the end of a boa to the outside of the wreath form with a piece of wire. Tuck ends of wire into the frame.

  • Form a loop with the boa and attach a second point to the inside of the wreath form. Alternating between outside and inside of the wreath form, continue attaching the boa around the wire wreath form.

  • When you get to the end of the first feather boa, start the second boa.

  • Continue around the wreath form until you have completely covered the form with the feathers.

  • With the mesh ribbon, make 8 loops of ribbon, as shown. Hold the middle of the loops together with one hand.

  • Using a piece of wire, gather this middle section of the mesh ribbon loops together to form a loose bow shape.

  • Twist the wire closed around the center to keep the bow shape. Leave the wire ends open so you can use these to attach the bow to the wreath form.

  • Fluff the loops open to form a bow shape.

  • Cover the wire in the center of the bow with a piece of ribbon. Knot loosely on the top.

  • Trim the edges of this piece of ribbon to finish off the ends.

  • Attach the bow to the top of the wreath with the wire.
  • Fluff the bow as needed.

  • Gather one of each color red, white and silver star bead. Cut the beads to form a long garland like piece.
  • Attach these to the wreath in two places, creating a swag of sparkly beads across the form.
All that is left to do is attach a small loop on the back to hang your custom wreath. Find a special place for your fluffy wreath and enjoy your patriotic holiday creation!
