    dip the feathers in pure red food coloring, and get some metal wires
    and stick the cork in the ends of the wire and make a dozen wires about 3 inchs long and then tie the wires, maybe hid them somehow... humm. sweet idea

    if you bend out the feathers around the midpoint, it'll REALLY look like flowers.

    low quality... after all, they all look the same, just fly differently. and it's pretty easy, you can just snap them so that they stay at a 90 degree angle to the base of the shuttle.

    Otherwise kwun would have done this on his wedding!

    But I think it is a brilliant idea for someone who is also keen on badminton.

    Why not make a few sketches first and show us how your bouquet looks like?
    What are your friend's favourite colours so that you could paint the feathers of some shuttles in her different colours. How about paint the cork gold? Has she got a favourite flower as well so that you could also add some to your bouquet?

    I think the wires should be of different lengths and shapes. You should also use part of the badminton net as your background.

    But do make a few sketches first to start off with!

    OK, but you can paint different shades of blue, from darker to lighter. Maybe also to leave some parts of the feather on a few shuttles white to make them more alive!

    Add some golden or silver 'sparklers' to your feathers to make them shine and come alive. I hope you know what I meant by this, like sprinkle some very fine golden/silver/blue 'ashes' that you may be able to find in art shops, etc. Sorry I can't find a word for that.

    After your flower shuttles are moulded and painted, you can spray some sort of transparent paint (ask the spray paint shop for advice) over your creations to "hold them fast and steady".

    Sorry, I've not done this before and if I have to do it, I'll need to experiment with the different materials. To bring the cost down, you may try to use postal colours but because it is water based, you need to hold the colour fast by using the transparent paint sprays (get advice from shop). Practise first before you embark on your actual shuttle bouquet.

    I've made a sketch to give you an idea. You can use any number of shuttles you like so long as you are happy with them. The wire mesh I proposed should have holes big enough for you to stick the shuttles into. But please use your imagination/creativity and whatever other better resources that you can command.
