How to Make A Feather Quill Pen

1.  Acquire your materials.  A feather, a pen nib (from any art supply store), a scrap of ribbon, and some ink.  This ink has a super cute label and totally elevates your gift into awesome territory.

2. Use a dab of hot glue to attach your pen nib to the tip of your feather:

4.  Umm, you’re done.

So easy right? Now you just need to practice your calligraphy skills.
