Five Uses for Feather Boas (Alright, Ten)

Note: If this is your first time here, please visit this brief rundown. Thanks!

Happy Tuesday, folks! I hope your week started off well.

Well, with Irish music like what I found yesterday, how could it not have?

My, aren’t we full of ourselves today?

Oh, you are too?

Anyways, I’m here today to talk to you about one of the most delightfully fluffy fashion accessories on the face of the earth:

The Feather Boa

A Feather Boa? Snakes on your world have feathers?

Oh. No. Not that type of boa. No, Feather boas are a fashion accessory! They look a bit like this:

Purple Fluff, in Accessory Form!


Uh, what?

So. Flippin. Fuzzy. What do you even do with it?

Ah, how convenient! That leads me to the topic of:

Top Five Things to do with a Feather Boa

1) Wear it around your neck. It’s sort of like a big long feathery scarf.

That… would clash with everything. And it would get itchy.

Hush, Fluffy! Will you let me finish? Please?

Ok, ok, sorry. Finish your list…

Thank you. So as I was saying, if you wear it around your neck, it’s like a really long feather scarf. And really warm! After all, that fluff traps a lot of heat. It’s great for cold winter days.

2) Cut it to an appropriate length, and use it as a headband. Like with the scarf, it will keep your head warm. And be quite the daring look!

3) Give it to a child for dress-up. It adds instant class to any child’s wardrobe, and will let her have a lot of fun. The boas come in all sorts of colors! Hot Pink? Instant princess! Black? You’re princess Batman! Lime Green? Celebrity. And there are so many more!

4) Give to a child as a toy. And now the child can use it with her stuffed puppy as a leash! And that leash has such class.

5) Decorating. I haven’t actually tried this, but I imagine Red and Green Feather Boas can so easily be used to add festive cheer. Put them on the walls, around the windowsill, or anywhere where you’d normally use tinsel. This would provide a softer look. Let me know if that works? I imagine you can use pastel colors for a spring look. And so many more!

Well, there you go! Happy Tuesday!


I think this is where my main purpose comes into play… That was WAY to fluffy to be healthy. So, here we go:

Top 5 Things Fluffy Would Like to See Feather Boas Used For

1) fire-starters. Assuming they’re not made of non-flammable or toxic material, all that fuzz looks like it would start a fire amazingly. At the very least, it would get rid of the boa.

2) Fluffifier Decoys. Wanting to know who in the room is way too obsessed with fluff and fuzz? Pull out the feather boa. Toss it in some random direction. Watch and see how many people in the room go after it. Congratulations, you’ve now found all the Fluffifiers in the room!

3) Cleaning rag. Hopefully, by the time you’ve used it to wash enough greasy dishes, it will no longer be so… fluffy. At the very least, it will probably be a lot grungier, and therefore slightly less obnoxious.

4) A slingshot. And if you use sharp enough rocks or other projectiles, the fuzz will start to wear off. No more Feather Boa! Yay!

5) A rope Ladder. To a tree-house. Eventually, all that will be left is the base. And who knows, it might even attract more birds! And once again, you achieve the purpose of “no more feather boa.” And besides, what tree-house doesn’t need a snake-like creature hanging down from it?

And with that, readers, happy Tuesday!

    Fluffy isn’t going to like this (sorry Fluffy!) but I’ve found feather boas also make very nice gift wrap for CDs and other small items.

        You leave the CD in its jewel case and then wrap the feather boa around it. I’ve only done it with CDs, but I imagine it would work well with small books or DVDs as well.
