Materials Needed:

  • 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.

Add Nuts

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.

Insert Feathers

Use a wire cutter to shorten the length of the pheasant feather picks, if necessary. Insert picks into the foam, creating a full arrangement.
