Step 1: First trace the round mirrors with your Dressmakers White Chalk Pencil and cut the shape out with your scissors. You will want to make two of these round cut mats; one for each of the Pheasant Feather styles.
Step 2: Select your first set of feathers and organize them to your liking around the first piece of felt. Begin to glue them down one by one until finished. Continue and go on to the next feather mat.
Step 3: Stack the two feather mats on top of one another and glue them together in the center. Next, generously glue the round mirror to the center of the two feather mats.
Allow to dry overnight.
Step 4: Grab your Natural Twine or Cording of choice and braid enough to go round the circumference of mirror. Continue and glue the braided cord around the mirror. Once done, cut the excess cord and glue.
Step 5: Cut a small 2×1” piece of felt and center the large paperclip at the top, back of the mirror. Glue the felt over ½ of the paperclip leaving the other half exposed to be used as a hanger.
Allow to dry overnight before hanging up.
