I even found that I added peices of the boa into my full set of plumes and it looked even better. If you can't find them in the right color...dye the feathers in strong coffee for just 20-30 seconds, wash them off with soap, rinse very well, and blow them dry on a high heat setting ( to make them even fluffier) and they look PERFECT!!!!

May even you could dye the tips of feathers to imitate blacktips, with the coffee as well in spots and for a longer period of time, I haven't tried that yet though.....

I made 3 sets of full plumes that look incredible for $12.00 Cdn!

Have Fun!

Try googling JoAnn Fabrics or Hancock Fabrics. then searching for "feather Boas"

What would make them look better?
