Unfortunately even though I actually made these for the first time last year, my lazy butt didn't get to writing about it till today. *sigh* Farming is hard in the winter! It really wipes you out! Back to the ornaments though. You'll only need a few things:
- Empty glass ornaments They also sell plastic ones at the Dollar Tree if you want the kids to help. 2 for $1.
- Feathers, which you can find or buy.
- A pen or pencil to push the feathers in.
- A pair of scissors to trim the feathers if they're too long.
- Craft scraps like ribbons or bells if you want to go the fancy route.
I did mine in themes. All Guinea feathers in one which I added twine and some silver bells to. D'uccle feathers in another. Those are all orange, brown and black so I glued a piece of leopard print ribbon to the top. The third one is also Guinea feathers but I had some I dyed purple (I'll show you how right here) so I added purple ribbon to the top. They still look great even if you don't add any notions to them! I just happened to have all my craft stuff out, so why not? You can add a ribbon to the top to hang then or just use regular ornament hangers like I did.
