Peacock feathers overview

A peacock feather has the trademark “eye” toward the top of the feather, and these feathers can vary in lengths, commonly measuring anywhere from 25 to 35 inches tall and one to three inches wide.  No two feathers will be exactly alike.  Peacock eye and tail feathers, for instance, will be commonly used for bouquets and house decorations, while the wing and body feathers will be smaller and ideal for smaller crafts.

The colors of peacock feathers will be brown but may reflect blue, turquoise and green light.

Peacock feathers can often be purchased online via specialty craft stores, on eBay or on Amazon.  Before purchasing, just make sure you check out the retailer’s reputation and see what past customers said about the purchase.

 What are the extra costs?

Peacock feathers are usually used as an added decorative material to a piece of clothing or material.  Additional materials or patterns may be required depending on the type of job that you plan on performing.

Some peacock feathers can be put in someone’s hair, and if you need a stylist to perform this job, this service can cost $5 to $15.

How can I save money?

Check with bulk purchases that have more than 100 feathers.  Generally, the more that are purchased, the more you will be able to save per feather.
