How to Make a Pheasant Feather Centerpiece
Looking for a quick and easy centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table? Here's one that's seasonal and uses natural elements. Bonus: It's flower- and maintenance-free so it looks great without any fuss.
- large glass cylinder
- foam monument insert (available at craft or floral supply stores)
- pheasant feather picks
- bagged pecans, almonds, walnuts or filberts (in the shell)
- wire cutter
- reindeer moss
- sharp knife
Cut and Position Foam
Use a sharp knife to cut the top off the foam monument insert so it's shorter than the glass cylinder. Place cut foam in the center of the glass cylinder.
Surround the foam with a layer of one type of nut; for instance, we used pecans. Top nuts with a layer of reindeer moss then add another layer of nuts, such as almonds, filberts or walnuts.
Use a wire cutter to shorten the length of the pheasant feather picks, if necessary. Insert picks into the foam, creating a full arrangement.
Add More Moss
Finally, add another thick layer of reindeer moss on top, working it around the base of the feathers so none of the foam is visible.
