Thank you for all the nice comments about the guest bathroom and also for the sweet birthday wishes yesterday. Today I’m going to show you how I made the white wreath and the peacock feather wall hanging.
Let’s start with the peacock feathers. I have always loved peacock feathers for their colors and shape.
I knew that they would be the perfect touch in my guest bathroom. I wanted to hang them on the wall, but in a more unique way. This was a super simple project. Because this was hanging flat against the wall, I wanted it to be a little wider at the stems. To accomplish this, I added a wooded dowel between each stem. I used a small bit of E Z tak between each stem and dowel to keep everything in place.
Next I wrapped my stems with white floral tape. Then I wrapped the whole thing again with white ribbon. I used a piece of wired ribbon I had on hand. I secured the ribbon in the back with a floral pin, much like a bridal bouquet.
Next for some fun. I cut my two ribbons the same length and secured them together in the middle with a glue dot. This way they won’t slide when you tie them together. Then I simply tied them around the stems and added a metal washer I found on the work bench.
Inexpensive, cool “art” for the wall.
Now on to another inexpensive project. I know that there are a lot of tutorials out there that explain this one, so I won’t go into great detail. I used a straw wreath form and the largest coffee filters I could find.
I tried folding the filters a few different ways until I found the look I wanted. Then I simply hot glued them onto the wreath.
This project took about one Hawaii 5-0 episode to complete. Okay, maybe a little longer because it was a good episode and my attention kept getting diverted.
It looks like a bunch of fluffy carnations, don’t you think?
These projects cost less than $10 and took an evening to complete. They add the perfect finishing touches to the guest bathroom. Now at least one room in this house is ready for the holidays!
