Hanging Easter Decorations with Feathers and Beads

These pretty pastel hanging Easter decorations are made with feathers and colourful glass beads. Add them to a garland or hang from a spring twigs!

There is something hopeful and joyful about spring and Easter and this is reflected in the decorations I put in my home. I love bringing branches and flower into my home and adding feathers, beads and other colourful details. You can see even more of my Easter and Spring projects for you and your home here!

-Selection of beads, I’m using Czech Glass Mixes and Size 5 seed beads

How to make Hanging Easter Decorations:

1.Fold your 50cm length of thread in half and tie an overhand knot approx 2cm/1 inch from the fold. This creates a loop we can use to hang our decoration!

2.Thread on your beads to BOTH threads (think of them as one thread!)

3.Secure the threads in a fold over end, right up against the bottom bead. Then trim off any excess threads. And yes, this is what the hands of a Jewellery Maker and Crafter really looks like 🙂

They look great hung on a fresh branch. Just make sure your foliage is free of greenfly before bringing it inside…I didn’t. Schoolgirl error. Seriously, I have only just got rid of them!
