Gothic Christmas Tree Decoration
Black marabou feathers
Black card stock for cone or polystyrene cone base.
Flower or craft pick for topper.
This Christmas Craft project shows you how to make a black feathery Gothic style Christmas tree sure to impress your friends. Try making these for Halloween too.
Start by taking your polystyrene cone or create a cone using card stock. The size of your tree can be as large or as small as you like. This one we created is for a table top or table center piece size. You could make a gigantic one of these for a full sized tree.
Using glue, start securing the feathers to the cone, working from the base up. Make sure your feathers are free flowing and not getting stuck into the glue. Most marabou feathers are connected by a core string, glue this string to the cone rather than the feathers.
Once you get to the top, finish it off with a bow, ribbon or flower.
