"I was immediately drawn to these beautiful feather wreaths the first time I saw one. Then I learned the history behind them and adored them even more. This type of wreath is actually a Juju hat, handcrafted by the Bamileke people of Cameroon. They were worn at traditional ceremonies and royal festivals. Originally made with raffia, they can also be found made with lush feathers in all colors. Call them what you may, but these beautiful feather Juju hats make stunning statements as wall decor. The good news is that they are not difficult at all to make!"
