Feather Vases

Make a Feather Vase Centerpiece:

Those that know me know I have a bit of a feather fetish. I often incorporate feathers in my apparel and interior designs. We used several of these little vases at our wedding. Thankfully we had an awesome lady that worked countless hours assembling vases, flowers and other embellishments I dreamed up and insisted on. The nice thing about many of the pieces from our wedding is that I still use them around the house.

You will need:
  • Bud vase
  • Strip of feathers
  • Hot glue gun and glue
I like these little bulb style bud vases because the way the feathers lay over them. Your vase should be about 4” tall depending on the length of the feathers. Considering your vase should not show, upon completion of the project, it can be any color. Additionally, the feathers can be any color depending on your needs. You should be able to find these feathers (pre-sewn together in a strip) in your local craft store or fabric store. These are from Hobby Lobby.

Though it makes it easier if you measure the rim of the vase to pre-cut your feather yardage prior to gluing it is not absolutely necessary. From this point on it is pretty self explanatory. Squeeze a trail of glue on the top side of the rim.

Lay the sewn edge of the feathers in the glue.

Voila! This was way too easy to be so cute!
