Thanks for the compliments y'all.
Ok, here is the tute, hope it's clear enough.
1. Buy a cheap styrofoam wreath form. They have them anywhere, Michaels, Walmart, etc. I bought a medium/small one, cost about a dollar. Something like this http://www.createforless.com/products/productDetail.asp?ProductID=66758
2. Buy feathers. I looked all over the store and the only thing I found was feathers in small packages. They were too expensive for the amount I would be needing. A kept looking, and in a completely different department I found what they called feather trim. It looked something like this http://www.mjtrim.com/catalog/family.aspx?family=17%3a07
. Only mine didn't have that strip of satin at the top. Mine was just feathers sort of strung thickly on string. I think it cost me about $7.00 for 6 ft (or was it three ft, I forget).
3. Next I had to take the feathers off the string that was holding them in place. Not very hard, you just have to find the last feather (the one at the edge of the trim), or close to last, and pull it. It should tear the string and allow you to pull the rest of the feathers free. Most of the feathers have a fairly thick base/leg/stem (whatever you call it).
4. I pulled maybe a handfull of feathers at a time and began one by one, inserting them in to the foam. At first it seems as though you may break the feather stem, but you'll get the hang of it. Actually most of the feathers went in pretty easily.
5. Start wherever, I started on the top of the foam wreath, not on the inside portion. Stick the feathers in, one by one, at an angle. I put mine in at a pretty steep angle, the feathers were almost laying flat against the styrofoam. Keep going, placing one layer on top of the other as you go, so basically you'll be moving backwards. Don't place feathers extremely close to each other, it's not necessary. The feathers themselves will cover up any empty bald spaces. Then work on the inside and outside of the wreath, until everything is covered. The end, it's really that easy.
The only reason I chose this color was because the only other one was black, and I knew you would not be able to see the feather definition if I went with black. If I'd have had my choice I would have definately gone with something more funky.
Thanks for reading.
