When the color dries cut the green tube to stripes (we got 4 to 5 stripes out of each). Start gluing the stripes together with white glue (in a manner shown on the pictures). Let it dry.
Last comes the tricky part - gluing on the "feather tail" onto the peacock torso. We used white glue and we had to do it very, very generously so it took a while to dry and I had my doubts about it - it all looked so wobbly. But in the end it did hold. However if we will be making this pretty birdy again my glue weapon of choice will be a glue gun.
