Directions:

1. Wrap the wreath form

Wrap the brown yarn around the styrofoam wreath form until the wreath form is completely covered. Use glue every few inches to secure the yarn in place and keep it from unraveling.

2. Cut feathers

Cut out feathers from the craft felt. The feathers can be of varying sizes and shapes and don't have to be perfect.

3. Fold feathers

4. Glue feathers to wreath
