Rustic Feather Arrangements

What you'll need for this easy arrangement:

A container (*I used a small wood window box)  
Assorted feathers (Most of these are from a craft store, the pheasant feathers are fresh from the game farm.)
Green floral foam (enough to fill the container to about 1/2" to 1" from the top)
& Any type of dried moss

Simple steps:
Place your floral foam in the container  (to about 1/2" to 1" from the top)
Add dried moss to the top of the foam, filling the container completely
Insert the feathers into the floral foam starting with the longest feathers, working out from the center. 

*If you're using an unfinished window box or a wood crate:
I used a Minwax Wood Finishing Cloth in Dark Mahogany to get this rich, warm tone, -  I then (after the stain was dry) applied the Minwax Express Clear protective finish in Low Gloss.  Minwax made these steps very fast & easy!
