Ombre Paper Feather Wreath Tutorial:


Step 1: You'll need to choose at least three colors for your feathers. I chose four: white, light teal, medium teal, and dark teal. You'll also need a chipboard, circle wreath frame. You can make your own or find them at craft stores. Mine is about 12" in diameter.

Step 2: Because the background of the wreath frame can sometimes peek through, you'll want to paint the chipboard frame. I chose a white color as it was less obvious than the dark grey of the chipboard. I suggest choosing a paint color that will coordinate with your paper colors.

Step 3: Size your feathers in the Silhouette software. You can search by "feather" in the online store to find styles you like.


Step 4: Cut out enough feathers to cover your wreath. Mine wreath fits three feathers across each row. For some colors I did five rows and other colors I did five rows. Use a scoring board and a scoring tool to create a fold line down the center of the feather. Create a valley fold to give each feather some shape and lift.

Step 5: Begin adding feathers to your wreath frame. Try to keep the placement and the distance between each row fairly similar, but make sure the feathers point both outward and inward, as well as, centered on each row. Fill in "holes" as you go.

You can hang this wreath with a ribbon. I love the way a black and white ribbon looks. You can choose any color you want or use the wreath without a ribbon. The choice is yours.

You could also chose different shapes like leaves, paper strips, or any shape that fills a wreath shape. I wanted the natural look of feathers for this project.
