I love this time of year, and decking the halls with lots of pretty Christmas touches.  There’s nothing better than a few simple handmade additions each year, like these pretty Book Page Paper Feathers with Gold Glitter.

This month for our #12MonthsofDIY challenge we’re working with paper -check out the other 11 projects from my friends at the end of the post.  I decided to use paper book pages to make these gorgeous feathers.  They’re really simple to make.

I made a pretty little garland with my book page paper feathers, and also used a few with a little holiday nest.  These would be really cute as a gift topper too, or as ornaments on a Christmas tree.

Materials:

  • old books
  • glue stick
  • wire
  • scissors
  • glitter

To Make Book Page Paper Feathers:

  1. Rip a few pages out of an old book, and glue two pages together with a wire down the centre on the in-between the pages.
  2. Cut the paper into a feather shape, with the wire as the centre of the feather.
  3. Cut out a few notches in the feather, and then cut the feather like a fringe with narrow strips, and on a slight angle like a real feather.  The wire ensures that you can’t cut too far, and makes this step much easier than without a wire.
  4. Add some glitter to the tips of the feather, and after it dries ruffle up the fringe slightly to give the feather some dimension.

I love the look of these pretty little feathers, all dressed up for the holidays with a little glitter.

  1. Eeeek, I adore anything feather and this garland is so gorgeous! The gold dusting on the ends is making me want to rush out and buy all the glitter! I love the simplicity of this garland and the impact, just wow! Gurl, you know how to do garland!

  2. Scandi-chic as always! Beautiful garland. I love how you’ve delicately placed the glitter on the end of the feathers (not just pasted it on in huge gobs like I do). This garland is totally boutique worthy!

  3. these are absolutely beautiful! I love the way the gold just finishes off the feathers so perfectly.

  4. This is so clever and so creative! How resourceful to use pages from an old book! I have to admit the gold glitter touch is my favourite! Great project idea!
