7 Feather Crafts & Designs for DIY Lovers

Feather crafts are trending! We’ve shared 5 of our favorite craft activities: quill feathers, dreamcatchers, watercolor, ornaments, plus DIY designs for your journal or canvas.

White Quill Feathers

We have these white feathers in two sizes, small duck quill feathers and the longer quill feathers. We colored them with Crayola markers, then brushed them with water to blend the color onto the feathers. Let it dry, then you can add some details with fine point markers. You can also add sticky gems. You can also make gold dipped feathers and use them to create a DIY dream catcher mobile like the one above from the blog Honest to Nod. You can also find several options on Pinterest.

Feather Dreamcatcher

Our Feather Dreamcatcher Collaborative Craft Kit is a great project for afterschool and recreational programs. Work together to create an artistic version of a dreamcatcher! Paint each feather with water-base oil pastels, which look like watercolors when brushed with water. Layer the die cut printed feathers on the wreath base, then add a center string art design and finish by hanging string of feathers.

Inspirational Feather Art


Our new Paint Palette craft features an inspirational saying, be yourself, and a feather. Use the watercolor palette included right on the sheet to paint, and have fun with blending colors. When you are happy with your design, trim off the palette and frame your artwork! This is a convenient way to create a beautiful watercolor painting with a positive message.
