Cut the leather into 40” long strands.

Thread Leather

You'll only be using the hoop that doesn't have the screw on it. Fold one leather strand in half, leaving the ends uneven. Thread the ends through the folded loop around the hoop creating an overhand knot. Pull tight. Continue to create overhand knots all the way around the hoop with all of the leather strands.

Glue Feathers

On every third strand, glue a feather.
