This creation measures 22" X 15" with a depth of 4 3\/4". I cut and gathered the dogwood twigs in the wild, and most of the feathers I have collected over the years, with a few being bought.

After making my creation, the twigs were sprayed with several coats of clear glaze varnish sealer for protection, then the various types of feathers were glued in place.

This wreath is very versatile as it can be displayed any way you wish, and would look wonderful in a modern or rustic decor. Display on a protected door or indoors only.

A detailed description of my natural materials follows:

FEATHERS: Pheasant, Wild Turkey, Domestic Blue Swedish Duck

RED TWIG DOGWOOD
Description: A deciduous, many-stemmed shrub 3'-19' tall.
Stems and twigs dark red when young, gradually fading to grey-green, becoming red again in the Fall and Winter.

History: Long slim stems were used by Indians for basket weaving and are still used by present-day crafters.
Indians and early settlers smoked the inner bark, stem scrapings, and leaves, which have a slightly narcotic effect.
Indians also used an extract as an emetic for treating fevers and coughs and obtained dyes from the bark and roots.

Uses: A popular landscaping shrub, with many cultivars introduced.
