Earthy Paper Feather Wall Decor with Cricut

Do you love feathers and paper crafts as much as we do? Then you’ll enjoy making this pretty paper feather wall decor perfect for adding interest to any indoor space.

Pretty Paper Feather Wall Hanging

We instantly fell in love with this Hostess with the Mostess decorative paper ever since we used it to make these upcycled tin craft storage containers (our craft supplies are now organized in style!). We were very eager to use the leftover papers to make another paper craft.

Realizing we didn’t have any feather projects on our blog (shocking, I know :)), we combined the two ideas to make this pretty paper feather wall decor. It can be tough to find custom art for a large sized wall so this wall hanging is a great solution to any indoor space. We love how the light and airiness of the papers gently sway in the breeze…pretty relaxing for a bedroom!

How to Make a Paper Feather Wall Decor

Uploading the Feather Images

On a new canvas in Cricut’s Design Space, select Images from the toolbar.

Search “feathers” and click on a mix of feather images. Insert the images onto your canvas.

Move to the Color Sync tab to sort images by paper color. Cut the majority of feathers using the watery patterned paper and the least amount of feathers in the light blue geometric patterned paper.

Cutting the Paper Feathers

Set material type to medium weight cardstock.

Place the first paper color onto the standard grip mat. Follow prompts for loading cardstock paper into Cricut Maker and cutting and when the cut is complete, unload the mat from the machine.

How to Assemble the Feather Wall Hanging

Prepare to hang 4 individual feathers along each strand.

We found it easiest to assemble the piece with it hung on the wall, working one strand at a time.

Thread a needle with a long strand of fishing line approximately 40” long.

Poke a hole through the top of the paper feather and pull one end of the fishing line all the way through.

Join the ends of the fishing line together with the feather hanging on the line and thread both ends through the needle.

Next, poke the needle through the second feather pulling the line through. Loop the fishing line through the hole again to secure in place about 4” above the first feather.

Repeat for the third and fourth feathers.

Tie the end of the fishing line to the driftwood and continue with the remaining strands. And that’s it, the feather wall hanging is complete!
