"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

If you're on the hunt for fall grapevine wreath ideas, don't miss this feathered beauty! The DIY feathered wreath features gorgeous natural accents like pheasant feathers, broom corn, and wheat. Select feathers in your favorite autumnal hues of brown and gold to create your accent piece. A champagne-colored ribbon is the perfect complement to the whispy yet powerful feather center. Don't forget to add accents around the rest of the wreath, such as broom corn and of course, more feathers. Display this wreath proudly on your front door or stacked against some hay bales and pumpkins. This wreath can be repurposed year after year and will instantly get your home in the fall spirit.

Materials List

  • Pheasant Feathers - as many as you wish and the longer in length for a dramatic effect. Featherplace.com B574N-10
  • Hot Glue
  • Grapevine Wreath 
  • Wide Ribbon 
  • Broom Corn

Instructions

  1. Weave smaller pheasant feathers into a grapevine wreath. If you plan on hanging the wreath outside or somewhere windy, glue the feathers down. For indoor use, simply twisting the feathers in will do nicely.

  2. Weave in some broom corn (or other natural embellishments like wheat.) Again, glue down if needed.

  3. Create an eye-catching burst of feathers and broom corn at the top. Hot glue these elements onto the wreath.

  4. Wrap a length of ribbon around the middle of the feather burst. Secure with hot glue on the back side of the wreath.

  5. Tie a bow from the large ribbon and attach with hot glue.

  6. There you have it—the perfect autumn decoration! Hang it up and let it greet your guests and warm your home.
