STEP 1.

Wrap each boa around the wreath frame. Tie fishing wire throughout the boa to securely hold into place.DIY-Holiday-Feather-Chandelier-8

STEP 2.

Select your peacock feather swords and shape/curl as desired. Peacock swords are shaped best with a non-blunt or rounded edge (like closed scissors or pencil). Use the same technique you might use to curl ribbon for a gift. Trim off approximately 4-5 inches of each feather stem.DIY-Holiday-Feather-Chandelier-10

STEP 3.

Using clear floral tape,  wrap both peacock sword and feather floral pick together. Continue with all six of the feather floral picks. DIY-Holiday-Feather-Chandelier-13
