An Easy, Affordable DIY Feather Idea for Your Walls

All you need for this stylish accessory are feathers, wood, and some tape. What could be simpler?

When you work at Lonny, it's hard to appreciate things simply for what they are: everything—and we truly mean everything, from a dinner date at a new restaurant (look at those lighting fixtures!) to a trip to the bookstore—becomes fodder for a story.

Such was the case during a recent press preview with the reps of the Lonny-loved Chicago-based kids company Land of Nod. Impressed as we were with the pieces in the brand's spring 2015 collection, we couldn't stop admiring the DIY decorations that were used to embellish many of the furniture vignettes. One of our favorites was this clever wood-and-feather installation, which added a stylish note of rusticity to a spare mantel wall. That it couldn't be easier to recreate is just a small part of its appeal. Try it for yourself and let us know where you're displaying it.

- salvaged pallet wood
- hammer and nails
- feathers
- double-sided tape

1. Nail two horizontal pieces of pallet wood into the wall at least 18 inches apart (it may be more depending on size of wall).

2. Using double-sided tape, add feathers to wall and wood.
