Maybe some feathers poking out of the bottom, too? Or perhaps move the bow to different levels on the cone and see if it changes anything.

Could you wrap some lace fabric over the cones and secure it with spray adhesive? I think that would look better than the paper.

I like the idea.  Maybe try a different colored paper?  Or cut part of the cone at the top so it dips a little and add a few more feathers?  Love the start – be sure to let us know what you decide.

I also like that idea of a dip in the front.

maybe you could scallop the edges of the top and bottom of the cone?

I think I would like it more if the feathers were overflowing, like cascading down over the sides.  I don’t know if that will take more feathers or just a different length of feathers.  I think it’s a gorgeous start though!

I also think maybe a thicker ribbon / bigger bow would help.

I agree, a thicker ribbon will really help. That was my thought.

The first thing I thought of was a bigger ribbon…but then the feathers might “disappear”. I think you need some taller feathers.

Something taller that extends above the feathers for height, maybe a curly willow branch or a single purple flower.

I agree with the thicker ribbon and I would move it to the top.  Maybe vary the hieght of the feathers.  Here are some other thoughts:

You could punch a hole in the very top and string your purple ribbon through to hang it.  That way you have more of the purple and it’s not so white:

You could also put your monogram on the cone to bring some more of the purple color in.  You could print it on the paper or make a tag and tie it on the cone:

Good luck!  I think these are going to be great!!!

Do you have another accent color?
