Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children, one of my favorite reads is finally coming to the silver screen! We can’t wait to see Penny Dreadful’s Eva Green transform into the black feathered Miss Peregrine in Tim Burton’s adaptation of the book. We especially love the movie trailer below where you see Miss Peregrine’s full metamorphosis! Set to be released this September, we can predict that Miss Peregrine’s character is sure to be a hit this Halloween season! You can transform yourself into Miss Miss Peregrine with a pair of our Black Feather Mockingbird Wings and Black Feather Collars and Chokers.

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children

Burton described Eva Green’s character Miss Peregrine, the headmistress of the peculiar orphanage, as a “weird Mary Poppins like character — a strong and mysterious person who looks like she could turn into a bird. That’s Eva.” – www.moviepilot.com

Wild at Heart Feather Wreath

Feather Directions

STEP 1.

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.

Cut feathers to desired length. The length you trim off the feather may vary depending on the size and style of the wreath.

There are several fun & different ways to arrange your feathers. On our larger wreath we glued the feathers down in a tight color coordinated pattern.

On our second smaller wreath we chose to flip the feathers up and glue them down in a loose color coordinated pattern. Using push pins can be handy to help hold your feathers in place as you are assembling.

As a finishing touch, you can glue a feather boa to the back of the wreath to add a little flare.
