1 package of large white feathers
PVA glue
A little water
Foam brush
Small pearl beads
Ultra-fine glitter in lavender
Hot glue gun
Glue stick

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

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

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

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

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

Tie 8-inch (20.32 cm) pieces of ribbon into bows, leaving about a 3-inch (7.62 cm) loop for hanging your ornament.

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

Hang on your tree and watch them sparkle.

You can use them to make things for yourself. You can make some for your friends and ask them to pay for supplies. You CANNOT, however, ask them to pay you to do it as though you had created this pattern by yourself, or try to sell you crafts to a local store. 

Think about it. Would you take a Prisoner of Azkaban book, photocopy it, put your name in big red letters on the front cover and try to sell it in your local library? The answer is, obviously, no. Well, selling crafts you have made but not designed would be just as bad!
