Last year during the end-of-the-season Christmas sales I happened upon this beautiful white feather Christmas tree… Even though Christmas was over, I decided to purchase it and save it for next year. So when Christmas rolled around this year, I was so excited for it! And I actually decided to use it as the inspiration piece for the rest of my Christmas décor… Light, white and airy!
I started thinking about how I would incorporate the tree into my décor and think about what other elements would go nicely with it. It hit me at about 2am in the morning… I woke up, and thought feather boa garland!
And where is the best place to get white feather boas from? Why, the dollar store – of course!
(Notice that there aren’t any white boas in this pic… that’s because I already bought them all!)
And that’s how my white feather boa idea was born!
The next day I headed out to the dollar store, and purchased 8 white feather boas. I brought them home and was so excited to add them to my tree!
All I did was add them to my tree…
And then tie the ends together! Yes – it was that simple!
I found that it was actually easier to add them to the tree before tying them together. Then I fluffed up the feathers to hide the knots.
I really love how this DIY garland worked out… It certainly is light, white and airy! When the lights are turned on it kind of looks like a nice fresh snow has just fallen onto my Christmas tree!
Next year, I’m thinking of doing the same thing, only maybe trying a different color… like black, or red, or even purple! (Psst! Do you like my tree? Check out why I decided to spend a little more money on my Christmas Décor, this year!)
Just to summarize, I ended up using 8 boas on my seven and a half-foot tree, although next year I would probably add a couple more to the total… So if you try this yourself, just keep the size of your tree in mind!
Merry Christmas & Happy Decorating!
