Step 2: Cut three lengths of string unequal, then pass them through the hole drilled in the previous step. Stop the strings by knotting them together on one end.

Step 3: Braid the three strings together and stop the braiding with a piece about 15 cm from the shortest string.

Step 4: As the strings are of unequal length, garnish each one differently. 1 On the shortest length, stick the tip of the feather along the string 5 cm from the end. Let the glue dry and tie the rest around the feather. 2 On the average length, thread the needle and pass bells that you knot at different heights. Pass a pompom and then, to stop, tie the end of the string just after. 3 On the longest string, thread the needle and pompoms and set feathers following the example of the shortest string.
