DIY Pheasant Feather Trimmed Mirror Décor. In no time at all your space can go from drab to fab; revamping your mantle and giving it new life this fall. Decorating with pheasant feathers never looked so good!

Step 1:  First trace the round mirrors with your Dressmakers White Chalk Pencil and cut the shape out with your scissors. You will want to make two of these round cut mats; one for each of the Pheasant Feather styles.

Step 2: Select your first set of feathers and organize them to your liking around the first piece of felt. Begin to glue them down one by one until finished. Continue and go on to the next feather mat.

Step 3: Stack the two feather mats on top of one another and glue them together in the center. Next, generously glue the round mirror to the center of the two feather mats.

Allow to dry overnight.

Step 4: Grab your Natural Twine or Cording of choice and braid enough to go round the circumference of mirror.  Continue and glue the braided cord around the mirror. Once done, cut the excess cord and glue.

Step 5: Cut a small 2×1” piece of felt and center the large paperclip at the top, back of the mirror. Glue the felt over ½ of the paperclip leaving the other half exposed to be used as a hanger.

Allow to dry overnight before hanging up.

Every once in awhile we get to help on uber creative events like the Hauntingly Beautiful Feather Wedding Decor made for Michael Scola and Jordan Rodarte’s “American Horror Story” Themed Wedding!

Yes, that’s right we said… an “American Horror Story” Themed Wedding– and every single “AHS” inspired decor detail from the art deco venue, ostrich feather centerpieces to actor Naomi Grossman (from both Asylum & Freak Show) as the ring bearer, was on point!

“After Michael proposed to me and we started planning, we knew almost immediately we wanted a Halloween wedding,” Jordan said. “The ‘AHS’ thing came in once we chose our gorgeous Art Deco venue ― only to find out it was where they were filming ‘AHS: Hotel!’ That’s when we really went for it.”

Michael and Jordan who tied the knot last week on Oct. 29 at the historic Oviatt Penthouse in Downtown L.A  came to The Feather Place Los Angeles months in advance and with our help were able to make their wedding decor dreams come true! Using dark Teal Ostrich Plumes and Peacock Tails they created captivating feather centerpieces transforming their wedding venue into an art deco dreamland! We couldn’t be happier for these two! Thank you for counting on The Feather Place for all of your “feathered” needs!

Begin wrapping the ribbon around the heart wreath. We used 3 yards total for the larger wreath. This will vary depending on the size of the wreath. When you get to the center of the heart cut the ribbon and glue the end onto the wreath. Repeat this step on the opposite side of the wreath until it’s completely wrapped.
