Peacock feathers can definitely be considered an art form all by themselves. Many of us have seen them dangling from the ears of a back-to-nature type of girl or gathered in a vase on the shelf at our doctor’s office. And despite its repetition, in decor scenes the world over, we are still captivated by the natural egg and eye of a peacock feather-no matter how many times we have seen it on display.
Peacock feathers, fake or genuine can hold your attention without any costly additions or alterations. A simple display will create a unique design along with adding just the right amount of Bohemian flair to your home or personal space.
So whether you opt for natural feathers or synthetic ones, they are a simple DIY project that you can get started on for a cost effective decor item to share with your friends.
Though peacock feathers are often seen strung together in wreaths or placed in vases on tabletops, another simple and yet elegant means of displaying feathers is simply on the wall!
Feathered wall decor
When it comes it comes to the arrangement of your feathers on the wall you’re really only limited to what you can conjure up in your head. Because the real issue is not with the design but how to securely affix those delicate feathers to the wall.
So since we are talking about actual feathers here and not some simple slap and stick decals, things can get a bit fussy when figuring how to affix them to the wall. Some suggestions are as follows:
Arrange feathers behind a piece of glass using a standard picture frame or plexi-glass casing, attach to the wall with nails, screws or hooks.
Carefully glue select feathers to a blank art canvas and place in desired location again with nails, screws or hooks.
Affix actual feathers to the wall in an out-of-reach place such as over a mantel or near a wall sconce. (See below for details)
*When affixing the feathers freely on the wall you may have to try a few methods first before getting it just right. Some methods to consider are to attach the feathers with metal straight pins into the drywall or with a clear double sided adhesive (that will not damage the wall) to create a free standing affect. Another idea is to simply gather the feathers and staple them at the base along with a nice cover up such as a piece of lace or ribbon.
Overall whether in large or small numbers, the eye always seems to do the trick. But rather than sticking with a small amount, for an almost endless array of opportunities to decorate, do consider purchasing your peacock feathers wholesale to stay stocked on the elegance. The savings will hit you over time, believe me!
