In the autumn, I love to decorate with pheasant feathers. The striped markings of the plumage look so gorgeous when combined with dried flowers, grasses, and other natural elements. Here are a dozen beautiful pheasant feather floral arrangements. Some of them come with complete instructions so you can make your own, some include tips and hints for working with feathers, and a few are pure inspiration.
Faded Charm Cottage has the simplest arrangement of all. In keeping with a neutral palette, Kathleen put pheasant feathers in a white pitcher and placed other natural elements around it.
Arrange stalks of wheat to your pheasant feathers and arrange them in a white pitcher like Summer from Simple Stylings did. Simple and stylish – just what her blog promises.
BHG always has good decorating ideas. I love this bouquet of feathers mixed with dried grasses arranged in a glass vase that’s been filled with birdseed.
Check out this pretty fall arrangement from Duke Manor Farm. Laura agrees that fall decorations are fast and easy since all the natural elements like the pheasant feathers and cattails “naturally” look good together.
This Thanksgiving centerpiece idea from Design Sponge combines fresh flowers with pheasant feathers and other fall greenery. The sprays of feathers off the sides really sets off the whole arrangement. Thank you for the great tutorial, Sierra and Juliet!
This gorgeous centerpiece graced the Thanksgiving table at Stone Gable. This urn is filled with dried hydrangea and pheasant feathers.
This bold arrangement from Little Pheasant really makes a statement. I love the addition of the pussy willows and the Mercury glass candle holders in the center.
Pat has some wonderful Back Porch Musings about autumn door baskets. This basket has lots of autumn floral elements including pheasant feathers. Isn’t it great that these arrangements store well from one year to the next? Just dust them off and hang them back up!
If you’re looking for ideas and inspiration, check out the Susie Harris Blog. This simple grapevine wreath is adorned with small gourds and , what else, pheasant feathers!
Laura from Finding Home Farms made this wonderful wreath using brown tweed hounds tooth fabric. Since I’m crazy about all “material” things, I love the base, especially when it’s embellished with fabric flowers, pinecones, and pheasant feathers.
Can you guess what this wreath is covered with? Coffee filters! Recaptured Charm provides a great tutorial for making this autumn wreath accented with grasses and feathers.
Erica from Tell It To Your Neighbor made this remarkable feather wreath. She explains how to make the wreath beginning with preparing the pheasant feathers.
If you don’t have access to pheasant feathers “from the wild” they are readily available at most big box craft stores. Decorating with pheasant feather floral arrangements is an easy, inexpensive way to add texture to your autumn decor.
