I bought this basic white base wreath at Target a few months ago. I knew it would take me through several seasons.
Case in point, my magnolia-fied wreath from September.
Well, I stripped out all the dried magnolia leaves and was determined to give it a new look for Thanksgiving. When I think of Thanksgiving, I think of turkey! So, turkey, pheasant, and peacock feathers seemed like an ideal filler for my plain wreath. I also threw in some other feathers I had in my décor stash.
All I did was tuck some feathers into the wreath. Played with the placement of the feathers until I liked the look.
Then I added a dark teal satin ribbon.
Not bad, but not very exciting. I wanted to add some color, so I grabbed some green potpourri nuts and gave them a fresh coat of spray paint (Rustoleum Apple Green) to freshen them up.
Then, I put a small dollop of hot glue on the backs and pressed them onto my wreath. My goal is to continue to re-use the wreath, so I used the glue sparingly.
Now, that looks much better.
Then I hung my feather wreath up and my door is festively decorated for Thanksgiving.
After Thanksgiving, I’ll be haulin’ down the Christmas decorations. I’m trying so hard to keep the kids from dictating our decorating with inflatable santas, elves and more. Personally, I prefer the classic white lights, some greenery and a red bow to top it off.

    I really love the wreath with the feathers. Very cool. In Michaels this season I'm seeing feather wreaths and they're really gorgeous. And expensive. Yours is lovely!
