Feather flag poles are a unique and eye-catching way to display your team’s or organization’s pride. They are often seen at events such as parades, festivals, and special occasions. Not only do they serve as a visual symbol, but they also add a touch of class and elegance to any event. In this article, we will teach you how to make a feather flag pole from scratch. You will need some basic tools and materials, but with a little patience and practice, you will end up with a beautiful flag pole worthy of your occasion.


To make a feather flag pole, you will need the following materials:

  1. 10-foot long, 1/2-inch diameter wooden pole
  2. Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  3. Assorted feathers (different colors and sizes)
  4. Scissors
  5. Tape measure
  6. Painter’s tape (optional)
  7. Flag (with grommets)
  8. 1-inch wide, 6-foot long white ribbon (for tying the flag)
  9. 2-inch wide, 6-foot long blue ribbon (for tying the feather accents)
  10. Glitter spray (optional)


  1. Glue gun and glue sticks
  2. Scissors
  3. Tape measure
  4. Painter’s tape (optional)
  5. Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  6. Glitter spray gun (optional)


Step 1: Prepare the Pole
Start by sanding the wooden pole to smooth out any rough edges. This will ensure that the feathers adhere well to the pole. Next, measure and mark the center of the pole using painter’s tape or a piece of string tied around the pole. This will help you determine where to place the flag and the feather accents.

Step 2: Apply the Feather Accents
Choose a color scheme for your feather accents and start applying them to the pole, working from the top down. You can use hot glue to secure the feathers to the pole, making sure they are evenly spaced. Apply a small amount of glue to the back of each feather and press it onto the pole. Continue until you have covered the entire length of the pole. If desired, you can also add a layer of glitter spray to the feather accents for an extra sparkly effect. Allow the glue and spray to dry completely before moving on to the next step.

Step 3: Attach the Flag
Unfold the flag and lay it flat on a table or floor. Use scissors to cut out the grommets from each corner of the flag, creating small holes in each corner for tying the ribbons. Fold the flag in half lengthwise, making sure the top and bottom edges are even, and then fold it in half again widthwise. This will create a small opening at each end of the flag for threading the ribbons. Thread one end of the white ribbon through the grommet hole at one end of the flag and tie a knot to secure it in place. Repeat this process for the other end of the flag with the blue ribbon. Center the flag on top of the feather accents on the pole and secure it with hot glue along the edges. Allow the glue to dry completely before moving on to the next step.
