This stunning peacock has lots of different elements but can be mixed and matched with whatever collage items you choose to use. Looks so beautiful sitting on your shelf.

  • Step 1To create your tail, fold 7 green doilies into thirds as pictured.
  • Step 2Cut 7 small pie slice shapes from each of the blue and yellow doilies and attach to the green doilies as shown.
  • Step 3Cut a small paper plate in half. Staple each folded doily section to the front in a fan pattern.
  • Step 4Alternating blue and green feathers, attach 1 feather to the front of each doily slice. Attach with glue or staples.
  • Step 5Create a loop from your chenille stems and attach to your peacock’s tail in between the feathers. We used 3 green and 3 blue tinsel chenille stems.
  • Step 6Create your peacock’s body using the corrugated card and decorate using sequins, wiggle eyes and glitter. Attach with glue.
  • Step 7Use a small feather to decorate your peacock’s head. Attach with glue.
  • Step 8To create a stand for your peacock, cut a rectangle from corrugated paper and fold in half. Attach half to the back of your paper plate with glue. Allow to dry.
  • Step 9Sit your peacock tail onto a large pop stick and attach the rectangle with glue.
  • Step 10Position your peacock’s body at the front of his tail and glue into place. Allow to dry.
  • Step 11To create feet, roll up 2 small pieces of corrugated card and attach to the front of the pop stick with glue. Your beautiful peacock is complete!
