Easter decoration – How to make paper feathers.

A few years ago I showed you how to easily make paper feathers. They turned out so pretty and you can do so many different variants of them so I thought it was worth sharing again now during easter and isolation times.

All you need is some paper, glue, grill sticks and a scissor.

  • Pick some papers that you think would fit nicely. (For best result, use a thicker kind of paper)
  • Take two papers and glue them properly over the backs. Then place the sticks over one of them (on the glued part).

  • Add the second glued paper over the sticks. With the glued sides faced against each other and with the sticks in the middle (like a sandwich). pressure and smooth it tightly.

  • Draw a shape of a feather along the stick.

  • Cut out the shape.

  • You can also draw your own kind of pattern on if you’d like.

  • Or use old postcards.

  • Use the scissor to cut thin stripes towards the stick.

  • Et volia! You’ve made paper feathers!

Aren’t they pretty? And the best thing of all is that they are easy to make! I think it looks best if you make a few so it almost becomes like a small bouquet. Works perfect as Easter decorations (or as decoration all year round if you ask me ;).
