This project is part of HGTV's eight easy Christmas crafts to create.

Materials and Tools:

5 peacock sword feathers
5 peacock eye feathers
1-2 green chandelle or turkey feather boas
loose green feathers
foam wreath form
green spray paint
spray adhesive
wide purple ribbon

Lori-Ann-peacock-feather-swordPeacock "sword" feathers form the sides of a male peacock's tail.

Steps:

1. Paint wreath form green and allow to dry thoroughly.

2. Coat wreath form with spray adhesive and attach feather boa (or boas) while glue is still tacky. Fill in with loose feathers until all parts of wreath form are covered with feathers. Note: Depending on fullness of feather boa, more than one may be needed to cover wreath completely.

Lori-Ann-peacock-feather-swordPeacocks molt their feathers once mating season has ended. The peacock eye feather, shown above, makes up the majority of a male's characteristic fan.

3. Tuck peacock sword feathers and eye feathers into feather boa, pushing the quill ends into the foam wreath form to secure them.

4. Wrap top of wreath with ribbon to create a hanger.
