Peacock feathers can be a beautiful addition to a gown, veil or tutu made from tulle. Asian cultures are particularly keen on incorporating bird feathers into wedding dresses. The luxurious plumage of a peacock feather contrasts well with the slightly crumpled, mesh-like tulle. When attaching peacock feathers to tulle, it is best not to glue peacock feathers directly; use felt as an intermediary instead.

Step 1

Cut the felt into your desired design. It can be any shape, as long as it is large enough to fit a few feathers.

Step 2

Put fabric glue onto the back of the felt piece and attach it to the tulle. Depending on the effect you wish to achieve, tulle can look good when scrunched up, so use the felt piece as a type of fastener to hold the ends of a piece of tulle in place.


Step 3

Attach the peacock feathers onto the felt. Put a little glue on the stem of each feather and press it against the felt. Do not get any glue onto the plumage or you will ruin it.
