We love peacock feather centerpieces—especially because they are so easy to re-purpose. So get your creativity on, and get designing! To kick things off, we’ve put together five ideas that are easy, clever and inexpensive.

Create a “Flower” Arrangement

Put your peacock feathers in a clear vase, add a little decorative filler and voila! A lovely and unique arrangement with a pop of color to brighten your space. If you’d like, you can even include some real or dried flowers for variety. There are no rules, so put on your decorator hat, and arrange away!

Want Good Dreams? Make a Peacock Feather Dreamcatcher!

Used by the Ojibwa tribes to filter out bad dreams, these feather-adorned hoops are a favorite of modern craft kits. A perfect use for your peacock feathers, dreamcatchers are fun to put together and beautiful around the house. Buy a craft kit, or look up the instructions online.

Don’t Forget Your Memory book

Could there be a more appropriate place for your peacock feathers? We don’t think so! Keep your memories safe by using your feathers as a theme throughout your scrapbook or by tucking a few feathers into key pages.

Decorate a Picture Frame

Along the same lines as your memory book, incorporating your peacock feathers into the design of a picture frame—particularly one featuring photos of your event—is a great way to stay connected to your big day.

Peacock Feather Earrings

Peacock feathers are enormously popular when paired with beaded earrings—for good reason! They’re just the right size, and the deep and vivid hues pair perfectly with different styles. Make your own gorgeous peacock feather earrings out of your centerpiece feathers for the price of nothing more than a few simple items from a craft store.

However you choose to reuse you peacock feather, think creatively and have fun!
