1. Cut a 3.2 m piece of Alcantara cord. Glue one end to the small wire ring with the hot glue gun. Wrap it around the ring until there is about 7-8 cm of the ring left visible. Glue the end to the ring with the hot glue gun.

Cut approx. 5.4 m of Alcantara cord for the large ring. Glue one end to the large ring. Wrap the ring approx. 15-20 times. Then position the bare section of the small ring against the large ring and continue wrapping both rings, binding them together. When the bare section is covered return to wrapping just the large ring. Fix the end of the cord with more glue.

2. Cut pieces of the various ribbons. Wrap them around the rings, sticking them to the back. Remove any excess ribbon. Fill the gaps with satin ribbon or cotton cords, fixing them in position with glue.

3. Cut 4 40 cm pieces of white cotton cord. Tie each strand in the middle of the two ring bound section. Thread the cords with matt Indian beads. Tie knots in the thread to create irregular intervals between the beads.

Cut 3 40 cm of cream cotton cord. Tie these to the two rings in between the white cotton cords. Thread the silver lined pink Indian beads onto the cords. Tie knots to create irregular intervals between the beads.

Cut 4 40 cm pieces of double satin ribbons. Use a touch of hot glue to stick the middle of the ribbons to the rings in between the cords. Pull the ribbons straight and use scissors to cut the ribbons to make the ones at the sides shorter than those in the middle.

4. Cut a 1.2 m piece of double satin ribbon and fold it in half. Attach the ribbon either side of the two ring bound section to create the hanging strap. Use the hot glue gun to attach three feathers to the rings either side of the strap.
