Cut strips from the fabric, approximately 1-2″ wide and 18-20 inches long.

The fabric pieces should fill approximately 1/4 of the ring, as shown.

Layer the strips of fabric about 1/2 an inch over one another, working from one side to the center at the base of the ring.

Once fabric reaches the base, begin at the opposite side and work towards the center again.  The final pieces of fabric should be applied over the bottom (middle) of the ring.

Lay the piece of chicken wire across the back of the ring and bend flat.  Using wire cutters, trim the chicken wire to fit inside the ring.  Be sure that the wire is cut as close to the edge as possible without being visible from the front.  This gives ample room for adhering the wire to the back of the ring.

Once complete the wire should appear as shown.  Be careful when handling wire to prevent pokes!

Lay the gold trim over the hot glue with the finished (glued) end at the tip of the feather.  When dry, gently fold the feathers inwards using the trim as the center.  This gives them a lovely three dimensional look when they hang.

Gather the ends of each piece of trim and line them up on the ring.  Placement is really based on preference.  We chose to hang ours slightly off center.  Once placed, apply hot glue behind the trim and then hold into place until dry.  Be sure that there is 1-2 inches of trim hanging above the hot glue.
