I bought my feathers at for about $2. I have seen them at a variety of Dollar stores, big box stores, and craft stores. Then I realized I did not have any cones for trees. I decided to make my own from cereal boxes or whatever kind of box I could find.
Just unfold your box and lay flat. Cut away the flaps on both sides.
Roll into a cone like shape and cut off the excess.
Glue down that flap and you are left with this....
That won't sit up straight. Cut the end until your cone stands up right.
Now we are ready to craft. Take your feathers and glue them on starting at the bottom row.
Just keep filling in until you can't see the brown anymore. Then start with a second row. This smaller tree only took 2 rows. The larger version took 3.
Now for the top. I took a fuzzy feather.
Snipped off the end and wrapped it around the top using hot glue to secure.
That is really it y'all. This one is super simple. It can be completed start to finish in less than 30 minutes. Gotta love hot glue!
