  2. Tear the tissue sheet into smaller pieces. Glue to the ornament overlaying the tissues. Let dry.
  3. Cut shapes from the doilies and glue in an attractive pattern onto the tissue.
  4. Using a small dauber sponge, paint the doilies with complimentary transparent paints.
  5. Lightly spray the ornaments and feathers with Bright Blue and Yellow sprays. Let dry.
  6. Print the Boho tags onto a piece of scrapbook paper. Trim out and sponge the tag edges with Sepia.
  7. Cut a 14" piece of burlap string. Tie one end to a feather. Hot glue the feather to the neck of the ornament. Wrap the remaining string around the neck and hot glue into place.
  8. Cut a 5" piece of burlap string and tie the tag to the ornament neck.
  9.  Cut a final piece of burlap string to attach to the top of the ornament for hanging.
