- Using templates as guides, cut out one large and one small feather from two pieces of different colored medium-weight wool felt.
- With a hot iron, press a crease down the center of each feather.
- Add a jump ring to a jingle bell.
- Slip end of a 1-yard length of satin cord through jump ring. At bell, tie stems of feathers to cord with a square knot. Knot both ends of cord to prevent fraying.
