First you take a Broom, Take the fibers off of the broom, and than make a stand out of cardboard and than glue the fibers individually with super glue to Color the Crest before glueing spraypaint with Regualer Spray paint or use fabric paint so it can bend a little. You say you are in charge of props? Then Enlist everybody in the making of the crest, if this dosen't work I an sorry i'm just taking a shot in the dark here.

Hope it works and good luck with the play!!!!!!
P.S. Go see 300! It is a very Cool movie and has pretty good pics of Cornithatin Helmet and the crests
