I’m in love with a lot of the unique wall art I’m seeing lately. I’ve made several wreaths, but decided to try my hand at this textural treat for the eyes, feather wall art, also known as a Juju hat.
Here are the step by step instructions along with your supply list. Easy peasy and not pricey at all!
At least 5 yards of rooster feathers which are strung together. These are what I used and I had a yard leftover. Also you will need a glue gun with about 10 glue sticks. Besides that, you will need a piece of cardboard or a paper dinner plate to adhere your feathers to.
- I used a cardboard box and made a template from an oval antique tray I had.
- Start gluing your feathers onto your surface, following the angle it. Go completely around.
- On your second pass, have the strung feathers jig in about a half an inch. Continue this process until you get to the very middle.
- End your length of feathers by cutting the end off and gluing it down. Fill in the center of your project with small pieces of your feather strands, gluing them in place.
- Once your middle is filled in, fluff your art work.
- Fill in with pieces of the rooster feathers, gluing down as you go, keep fluffing and filling in.
- Hold up to get perspective and see if there are any thin places.
- Voila. You are done in an hour or less!
I hung my project with command strips so it didn’t damage my wall then ended up using the strips to hang over the fireplace.
