Feathers – I bought goose but I’d possibly recommend something a little softer.
Paper lantern – mine was free, I have many more if anyone wants some. They’re a little on the dusty side though…
Start at the bottom, I found putting the glue onto the feather trim was easier. If your feathers have a curl (unlike mine, grrr) you’ll want them to kick upwards.
If you have the problem I had with straight feathers, use the back of a blunt knife to curl them, gently, as you would with ribbon.
And there you have it. Easy right?
I added more around the middle but with the light shining through I’m thinking it’s not the best idea, fortunately I can just take a layer off.
