fall feather wreath : DIY

Let's make a fall wreath...
 i used an old wreath that was already covered in yarn, but any wreath will do since it will be covered

* wreath
 * strips of fabric about 1 inch wide
* paper (any color you want)
* yarn
i didn't use anything to keep strips on, i just wrapped over itself to keep in place.  i kind of cheated and used a few wider strips near the end because i knew the feathers would cover it.
 i used a few pieces of this floral fabric since i already had it from a previous project.
 i just used regular white printing paper.  i sketched the feather on one sheet and cut out five all at the same time by stacking the paper.  then i just made cuts on the sides to give the feathers the texture.
 pick out some pretty yarn.
again, i didn't use anything to keep yarn attached, i just wrapped it over itself.
