Here's my Peaceful Peacock.
He's made of pine cones and a few other decorative items.
I made him for my center piece for a fund raiser that my
church was doing.
It's called Festival of Tables.
You're in charge of deciding on a theme and decorating a table.
You provide a little take home gift for each person that has
purchased a ticket to sit at your table.
They in turn receive a delicious meal and some form of entertainment is provided
for the group. It's quite a fun evening for everyone.

Below I've listed the items I used to make him.
First there were the pinecones.

 Then I bought other sparkly items that I thought would show up.

Some peacock feathers of course.

And some dried floral for the tail.

I started by glueing the pinecones in the shape of the peacock.

I spray painted him solid blue to start with.
Then added green later on.

I had this thing that came off of something, so I spray
painted it and decided to use it for the stand.

Here's a look see of it almost complete.
As you can see I have him propped up on
some wooden logs.

Now he's all finished and here are some completed shots.
I hope you find him interesting.

His booty. 

I inserted some of the sparkly floral in between the pieces of pine cone.
I thought it would fill in well and add some interest.

Here's his head shot.
Don't hate him because he's beautiful:)

Now that you've seen how I made him,
here he is in all his glory at the Festival of Tables.

 Here's a look at how I set everything up.
It started with a table for 10 and a white tablecloth.

Then I added a light green overlay that I made out
of two sheer curtain panels.

I then added a peacock wreath that I've had for some time.

Next I started layering the chargers and place settings.

I made the place cards out of small pieces
of a tree limb. It ties in with the logs the peacock is sitting on.

 And here it is all completed.

A head on shot of my Peaceful Peacock.

Another look see.

For the chairs I tied sparkly ribbon and inserted  some sparkly foliage.

One last look.
Everyone had a wonderful time and there were so many
beautiful tables created.

I hope you enjoyed the process of the Peaceful Peacock.

for the king had ships of Tarshish at sea with Hiram's fleet,
and once every three years the ships of Tarshish
would arrive bearing gold, silver, ivory, apes, and peacocks.
