Cut small pieces of the feather stings of about 3-4cm long (1 1/4 - 1 1/2 in)
Lace and Feather Christmas Tree
A fluffy Christmas tree made of white feather strings and white lace flowers is an alternative way to decorate for Christmas, but still impressive. Add a quick to make flowers light string to match the tree.
Separate the lace flower from the string. You can cut and add more as you go to cover the cone.
Use the hot glue to set the feathers on random places on the cone.
Fill the gaps among the feathers with the 5-petal flowers using the hot glue gun too
Add beads and sequins using the jewellery glue. Choose the color of the beads and sequins that match your decoration.
For the lights stings
Cut 5-petal flower from the lace as many as the bulbs on the lights string.
Use a a thick piercing tool, or if you don't have one, a bamboo skewer will work fine too, to make an opening in the center of the 5-petal flowers.
Place a flower on each bulb. The lace will tight a bit, keeping the flower on the light. Alternatively, just a drop of hot glue will set the flower.
