Why You Should Decorate Your Home With Feathers This Fall


In lieu of classic autumn leaves, opt for feathers in a myriad of colors for your Thanksgiving table, mantel, or just because.

Often times people think of leaves when they think of decorating for fall, but I prefer feathers for their texture, range of colors, and their sturdiness (leaves can crumble even with just the slightest of touches).

Here are some of our favorite ideas for using feathers in your autumnal décor.

Feather Art

These prints are stylish enough to keep up all year round and can easily be downloaded and printed at home. I love the idea of framing these in a set of three in gold or rustic wood frames and putting them on display on a mantel.

Feathered Juju hats are all the rage right now and you can see why. They look fabulous hanging on the wall as a piece of art or clustered together to make a statement.
