My mother and I decided to revamp my roommates christmas wreath one night because I could not stand the evil tinsel garland on it. There were these pretty teal and green tassels on it already so I made a search of the house trying to find something to match. I pulled out a masquerade mask I had feathered and the Classy Chicks Wreath was born.

This is a leather half face mask I purchased and then tacked a piece of felt to the back with the feather arrangement so it's removable.


The ribbon was purchased last year during after christmas sales. The opera gloves I wore with the mask to a masquerade ball 2 years ago. The tassels were after christmas sale purchases from years back. The beaded trim was leftover from a wedding at the hotel where my roommate works. We pulled back the pieces of the wreath and laid the wire beaded trim through of the middle of them, then pulled the branches back to hold it in place and make it look "random". I added an awesome chain choker of mine to finish it off.

Until I found a hideous plastic wreath star thing in the christmas decorations for my office. My roommate took it apart and found that it was a ring of christmas lights! And the perfect size to fit our wreath.


Friends don't let friends use tinsel garland!

Ah, the mighty EMU.
Man do those feathers suck up dye and look gorgeous 5 minutes later!
Beautiful feather arrangement you have there. I see guinea, emu, and possibly ostrich.
The sheer ribbon is very pretty and matches the feather mask well.
I like the presentation and love the color harmony. Smiley
