Honestly the best advice I can give you as a DIY addict is to go to a craft store and look at the feathers. Hobby Lobby and Michaels have a lot of different feathers to choose from. Take this photo with you so you have your inspiration closeby and try and get what you need all in one trip. As far as building a bouquet, I can definitely help you with that if you need it.

If you go to Hobby Lobby or Michaels, they typically have a “bridal” section. Try and find what looks like this:

Put a dab of hot glue on the ends of the quills and stick them in the styrofoam. If the feathers are too short, you can hot glue them into straws. Sounds weird but it totally works.

Then you can cover the handle in your desired ribbon/fabric. Easy and fairly cheap!

Another thing that really works and that you probably already have in your house- paper towel roll-the cardboard thing. Post pics when you have progress, I love DIYs!

@choolove: Will you be posting your progress?  I’m hoping to do the same for mine (feather flowers) and am not sure if I can do it or not… seeing a work in progress would help 🙂

Um – I LOVE this. I am not a fan of real flowers, so the more creative and un-traditional bouquets I’m seeing is great! I’m so excited to try and make my own DIY bouquet. I think I’m gonna use paper flowers… maybe some beads too, not sure yet 🙂

Hello! I’m going to do a little self-crediting, here.  I created this bouquet, and ones similar to it can be purchased through my Etsy website, Duplume (I can also easiily make this one again, too!) More bouquets will be uploaded soon!
Thanks for looking fellow bees, and good luck!
