Feather Directions
peacock step 1 STEP 1. Cut an oval out of cardboard for the base of the peacock tail. You can adjust the size for the wearer, but this child size version is about 10x5 inches.
peacock step 2 STEP 2. Glue on the shoulder straps made of matching elastic. We’ve used some sequined elastic here.
peacock step 3 STEP 3. Glue down the first row of peacock feathers, making an elegant fan shape. We’ve trimmed our feathers down a bit, but you could leave them long for a very dramatic effect.
peacock step 4 STEP 4. Now comes the second row of peacock. Arrange these feathers slightly lower and filling the gaps in the first row.
peacock step 5 STEP 5. We’ll now add a layer of felt over the peacock quills. This will make the tail a bit more comfortable to wear.
peacock step 6 STEP 6. Flip the entire piece over and begin gluing down a row of ostrich feathers. The ostrich really fills in the gaps and makes the whole tail look nice and full!
peacock step 6 STEP 7. To finish the tail, cover the cardboard back with a marabou boa. Simply spiral it around the shape, gluing down as you go.
peacock step 6 STEP 8. You now have a truly sensational peacock tail. There are lots of options to complete this costume; some options below. Dress it up or down, for big girls and little! This costume is sure to be a hit!
peacock step 6 You could pair the tail with a simple dress (we added some marabou trim and a sparkly belt to ours!)
peacock step 6 Or a colorful leotard! Have fun with any extra feathers by adding accessories like a striking headband or sassy shoe clips!
