I’m thrilled to share with you some super fun feather crafts you’ll want to try today! This post contains affiliate links.

As I explore my craft room for things to create, I like to start with materials. Let’s discuss feather crafts!

There are so many fun and beautiful things you can create using feathers. You can craft many unique things that go way beyond the traditional feather-on-canvas craft. Feathers are one of my favorite crafting items and for a good reason! They add a touch of warmth and spirit to any project.

These fun feather crafts include the perfect ideas for everyday home decor or for a new stylish accessory you didn’t know you needed. Each craft will use feathers in a fun and unique way to keep you guessing and help you come up with unique ways to use feathers in your crafting endeavors. 

Feathers go beyond the solid colorful ones of your childhood. Try smaller spotted feathers, unique duck or pheasant feathers, dramatic ostrich or peacock feathers or neutral turkey feathers. You can purchase solid colored packs for more specific projects too.

Here are the best feather crafts for any crafter to try.
