Feather Place Markers - Step 1

1. For each guest, cut 3 basic feather shapes from different colored papers and write the guest's name on one of the feathers.

2. Use a pushpin to make a hole at one end of each feather, then widen the holes a bit with a pencil tip. Thread the feathers onto a piece of string long enough to fit around the guest's water glass.

3. Loop the ends of the string around a rubber band and slide it onto the glass. Finally, tie the string around the glass.
