Isn't this glamourous!!

5 peacock sword feathers/ 5 peacock eye feathers/1-2 green chandelle or turkey feathers/ boas loose green feathers/foam wreath/ form green spray/ paintspray adhesive/wide purple ribbon/Peacock "sword" feathers form the sides of a male peacock's tail.
Steps:
1. Paint wreath form green and allow to dry thoroughly.
2. Coat wreath form with spray adhesive and attach feather boa (or boas) while glue is still tacky. Fill in with loose feathers until all parts of wreath form are covered with feathers. Note: Depending on fullness of feather boa, more than one may be needed to cover wreath completely.
Peacocks molt their feathers once mating season has ended. The peacock eye feather, shown above, makes up the majority of a male's characteristic fan.

4. Wrap top of wreath with ribbon to create a hanger.
