Step 3: Add Tape and Paint (Optional)

If you want to add some color to the feathers, tape off the part you don't want painted. Then brush craft paint over the feather. After the paint has dried, remove the tape.

Step 6: Cut Slits in the Strap

On the end of each strap, 1/2 inch from the edge, cut a slit from the top down, stopping 1/4 inch from the bottom. Then repeat on the other end but cut from the bottom up.
