Soup cans are transformed into vases for various feathers and cattails for a modern centerpiece.
- Soup/vegetable cans (washed and label removed)

Step 2: If you like, you can paint some of your feathers with gold paint for a metallic effect.
Step 3: Fill your vase with a variety of feathers. You can add other natural elements or greenery as well if you like.
