Started with the cardboard frame cut in an oval shape. Hot glued the metal wire for support and then upholstered one side. Glue black ribbon to the bottom of both sides so that the final product can be tied to the masqueraders back
Glued about 50 blue & black rooster feathers
Glue one yard of gold trim chain for finish it off.
I decided to make the collar that I’m wearing slightly different. I went with a lot less feathers, but bigger feathers. Ignore that one feather that is just doing his own dayym thing. I named him Ted and I’ll deal with Ted later!
