Default Trouble with ostrich clip.

I purchased this ostrich boa and now I'm afraid to cut it. Will it unravel and fall apart? Do you just cut about a 4" piece, move the feather, and hot glue it to the clip?

Don't be afraid to cut the boa it will not fall apart, when you do cut it though you will probably have a bunch of little pieces of feather come off, I always cut mine over a trash can for this reason so little pieces of feathers don't go everywhere, then you just stick hot glue on one end, bring the opposite end to that end stick a clip on it and your good to go!

I've been afraid to cut mine too. I can just see feathers all over my house! I wonder if the hand vac idea work with the bigger feathers?

yup - it is messy - heck - so is marabou! Just plan to vaccuum everywhere when you are done. If it makes you feel better,but a dot of hot glue on the end of the string that you cut. I glue mine in a circle to a felt pad and stick a clip on it.
