1. Insert the pheasant feathers into the sides of the plastic foam square. When inserting the feathers, stagger their positions so each feather slightly overlaps the one next to it. Insert feathers in four to five layers, working from the back of the wreath to the front, until wreath looks full and there are no visible holes.

2. Next, add the smaller teal feathers. Create as many layers as needed to completely cover the front of the plastic foam wreath. When finished, the sides and front of the plastic foam square should be entirely covered in pheasant and teal feathers, only the bare center of the square should still be visible.

3. Using hot glue, cover the plastic foam center of the square with brown satin ribbon. If necessary, better secure the ribbon with straight pins stuck into each of the corners.
