Take two metal rings measuring 25cm and 35cm in diameter and paint them the copper shade. Leave to dry thoroughly and then stick the two rings together in one spot using sticky tape.

Cut out 10 pieces of 2m-long string and knot each one as shown in the photo above.
This is that it will look like once all ropes have been knotted. Split the ropes into two equal sections with 10 strands on each side.
Starting with the two outermost strands, tie them to the innermost ring. Create the knots as shown in the photo.
Work diagonally and weave each rope in and out to create the pattern above. Knot all of the ropes in the same way.
Now split the ropes into 5 groups of 4. Tie these diagonally too, but this time onto the outer ring. Secure using the same knot as in step 4.
Paint 4 beads in the same colour as the metal rings and leave to dry.
Take 4 pieces of bakers twine, each 30cm long, fold into two and loop onto the outer ring, between each group of 4 you made in step 6. Thread a painted bead onto each piece of bakers twine and make a knot beneath it.
Attach a feather to the piece of rope underneath the bead using a length of bakers twine approximately 15cm long. Fold the bakers twine in two and tie alternating them to the left and to the right, as shown in the photo.
Smooth out all of the pieces of rope and trim the ends so they are nice and straight. Trim the smoothed out bakers twine into the shape of a feather.
