  • Step 1

    Spread the newspaper out on your table and lay the feathers you wish to turn into sugar quills on it.

  • Step 2

    Thin down the glue with a little water until it is milk-like in consistency, mixing with the foam brush.

  • Step 3

    Carefully brush the watered down glue on the feathers, making sure to follow the direction of the fibers.

  • Step 4

    Sprinkle the glitter over the feathers, then move them onto a clean sheet of newspaper to dry.

  • Step 5

    Once dry, move the feathers back to the original sheet of paper and repeat the process for the other side.

  • Step 6

    Tie 8" pieces of ribbon into bows, leaving about a 3" loop for hanging your ornament.

  • Step 7

    Glue the ribbon onto the pointed end of the feather, then glue a pearl bead over the knot of the bow.

  • Step 8

    Hang on your tree and watch them sparkle - but don't make the mistake of chomping down on them!
