DIY Feather Garland in 15 Minutes for Under $5

If there are two things I've learned since becoming a mom, it's how to get things done fast and on a budget. And since I'm more than a little obsessed with all things decor, I love anyway I can make an impact in a room without stretching my pocketbook! This DIY feather garland is a testament to the bountiful wonders of a bit of duct tape and some imagination...

I picked up some white duct tape for $1.25 and two packages of craft feathers for a total $2.50 at the dollar store. That's $3.75 TOTAL for this garland – less than the price of a grande latte, folks! I choose white for a soft and pretty look, but I think that black feathers would also look so cool in a monochromatic kids room. In the end, the two packs of craft feathers were enough for just over 5 ft of garland.

Materials for DIY feather garland

Step 1.

Line up your feathers with a ruler for a straight line. In hindsight, I think I might even skip this step because I think it would be pretty simple to make a straight line using the duct tape as a guide.

Step 2. 

Place your feathers along the bottom half of the duct tape on the sticky side.

You're done! Now if you have a sewing machine and are feeling adventurous, you could also try this DIY using a wide ribbon and sewing the feathers in. Or experiment with different kinds of tape (eg. a wide fabric tape). Let me know how it goes and what works for you!
