DIY - Fall Wreath With Turkey Feathers

The last few years we have had several turkeys living in our yard. It has been fun to watch them grow up. There are so many now that they are getting to be kind of a nuisance . There is a time each year where the boys do some serious fighting. They get so focused that you can walk right up to them. All this fighting causes them to shed a lot of feathers. Our grandkids love to collect the turkey feathers. The feathers come in all shapes and sizes and some are very colorful. We have a big tub full of turkey feathers the grandkids have collected.

Now that it is Fall, the leaves are changing and are quite colorful. If you add some cattails from the lake, you have everything you need to make an all natural Fall wreath. You can get any size foam wreath frame from you local craft store and pull out the old hot glue gun and get started. If you are lucky enough to be married to an artist, you might get a wreath that looks pretty good.

For more details go to:

  • Wild turkeys walking around like they own the place.
  • Boys will be boys. Lots of fighting.
  • A variety of feathers, some cattails and a few colorful leaves is all you need.
  • Almost done.
  • Close up of the feathers and leaves.
