Cut Feathers, Draw Lines and Write Name
Use the feather template attached above to create five feathers out of brown construction paper (Image 1). Use a black marker to draw lines on four of the feathers (Image 2). Write the name of a guest vertically on the fifth feather (Image 3).
Make Pheasant Face
Cut out the circles on the template and use them to create three small shapes out of red, green and white construction paper (Image 1). Glue all three circles together (Image 2). Add googly eyes and a small yellow construction paper beak to finish the pheasant face (Image 3).
Add Feathers, Face and Treats
Use hot glue to secure the place-card feather to the top edge of the cup (Image 1) then attach the four remaining paper feathers to the cup on either side of the place-card feather (Image 2). Use hot glue to secure the face to the front edge of the cup (Image 3) and finally fill cup with treats for your guests (Image 4).
