White Ostrich Tabletop Tree
Additional Supplies Items:
White Styrofoam Cone (18 or desired height)
Wire (18 gauge)
Beads Garland (optional)
Cut (1) ostrich feather at a time. Starting at the top of the Styrofoam cone, place (3) on with an S pin. Working your way down, place ostrich feathers on cone with s pins. Vary placement of feathers to create contrast on cone. Cut stem, leaving 2-3 inches, from hackle feather stem. Place stem in the center of the top of cone to create tree topper.
Remove clips from birds. Make a small hole into the bodies of bird. Glue a 4-5 piece of wire into hole on birds and place on tree using wire. ( Note: clips must be removed from all items, as ostrich feathers are too lightweight) Repeat steps with butterflies and hummingbirds. Add ribbon or garland if desired.
