Covering Styrofoam Balls with Feathers

I have peacock feathers and I would like to cover Styrofoam balls to make Xmas tree ornaments, but I am not sure how to? Any suggestions?

Perhaps you could cover the ball first in a cool fabric, then use hot glue or small needles to place the feathers in.

Or you could 'paint' the ball with white glue (dries clear) then roll the ball in a pile of the feathers. That way you get coverage and stick. Then you could go back once that has dried and 'varnish' with more white glue to get the feathers to completely conform to the balls rounded shape, and add shine-the colours in the feathers would be sparkly against the tree lights if coated lightly with a clear drying glue.


Neat project, if it works out, please post pics!
