Ruffle your feathers

Have you seen images floating around pinterest of feather lanterns?? I am dying to make one of these but have no clue how many feathers it will take.

I can't imagine any local craft store having enough white feathers to cover one. What do you think? I might have to delve into this one....maybe it will be a slow project-- over time-- Because I think I might lose my mind sitting there gluing feathers...and I'm bad with the glue gun. I'm sure I'll be full of blisters when all is said and done. But I think it will be worth it! I'll add that one to the list....
ps-- Do you not die over that bed too?? LOVES it!!

Couldn't you just use feather boas?

I could but I don't think it would have the same affect as I LOVE the way those feathers drape off of the lantern. I think using a boa would just look like a big puff ball of feathers. I'm strange with drape and curves like that! lol
