Feathers are hugely popular in DIY, fashion and home decor lately. I’m guessing you’ll be seeing even more of them over the next six months, as bird prints will be a huge trend for spring 2012. I never thought much about feathers, but I’ve recently found a few projects that have caught my eye . . . and I’m liking feathers even more and more. One project that intrigued me was this feather wreath from Brown Bobbin. It’s gorgeous and vintage-y and would be perfect in my house. There are so many more feather projects to share, including a tutorial for the very popular hair extensions. Check them out after the jump!
