    Feathers are a beautiful and versatile way to add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any table. With a little creativity, you can use feathers to create stunning tablescapes that will impress your guests.

    Here are some ideas for how you can use feathers as table decorations:

    Feathers can be used to create stunning centerpieces. You can either use whole feathers or feathers that have been cut into smaller pieces. You can also use feathers to create a variety of shapes, such as birds, flowers or even animals.

    Use tall vases or candlesticks and fill them with feathers of different sizes and colours. Add some LED lights or small floral arrangements to create depth and dimension.

    Feathers can be used to decorate candelabras. You can either place feathers around the candles or you can use feathers to create a centerpiece for the candelabra.  You could cut out circular or rectangular shapes from heavy-duty felt and glue feathers to the edges. Place them underneath to add a splash of texture and colour.

    Feathers can be used to add a touch of elegance to place settings. You can either place a single feather next to each plate or you can use a bunch of feathers to create a centerpiece for the table.  You could use pegs to attach a feather to a folded piece of cardstock. Write each guest's name on the front. These can be placed on top of napkins or at each seat.

    Feathers can also be used to decorate other parts of the table, such as the napkins, the tablecloth or even the chairs.  Use wire or elastic bands to wrap a feather around a folded napkin. This simple addition can elevate the look of your table instantly.

    Feathers can be used to decorate table runners. You can either place feathers along the entire length of the runner or you can use feathers to create a design on the runner.  String together feathers of different colours and sizes and drape them across the table or around the room for a whimsical touch.

    If you've discovered our latest news update then you're looking for ideas on feathers.

    We're hoping to help you discover how fantastic peacock feathers are. They have so many uses but here we're covering how feathers can be used in weddings.
    Have you heard the phrase "blue green should never been seen, except with something in between"? If so then the humble peacock feather makes a fantastic choice.
    Due to the feather shades of blues and green, pretty much any other colour can look fabulous.

  3. Feathers in Arts and Crafts

    Posted on

    I'm sure it comes as no surprise to you but we really do adore feathers.

    We love how light and delicate they are and we especially love how many shades, styles and types there are available.

    We're concentrating on the Goose Coquille feather today and how wonderfully versatile a goose feather really is.

    The number one most popular use for a white goose coquille feather is for stuffing into clear baubles at Christmas time.  The delicate nature mimics a soft, white fluffy snowflake.  The top of the tip of a coquille is sturdy enough for stamping meaning they can be personalised.  A genius idea, don't you think?

    Another great use of white feathers is in hats and hat making.  We especially like how the creator has layered the white feathers making them not only bright but beautiful too.

    We also find that white goose coquille feathers are so floaty, they are a photographers choice for photo shoots.  Look how they glide through the air giving enough time for that all important capture.

    Of course, once the feather has landed it can still create a work of art by sitting it on somethng reflective.  If you're an avid photographer or just starting out, why not consider goose coquille feathers for your next project?
