DIY Feather Ornaments

I wanted to share with you my little project I did a few weeks ago. I saw this on pinterest and thought it was so adorable, I just had to try it. What do you think? Pretty cute huh??!!

These were super easy to make. All you need is some air dry clay, a rolling pin, one clay tool {the one with the little hook end one side and the needle end on the other,} and a straw.

Roll them out pretty thin, but not super thin, you still want to be able to scrape the details into it. Cut the feather shapes into the clay and discard the rest.  Take the feather shape and draw two lines in the center.   Your going to take the hook end of the clay tool and scrape along the edge of the middle lines scraping outward to create a fluffy edge. Once you have the center line defined, take the needle tool and carve in little squiggly lines to create the texture of the fluff.

Your going to want to take a straw and punch out a hole for your ribbon. I used white, but you can use any color you want, you could also spray and glitter your feathers for a different look. I like them white personally.

If you want a 3D look, place the feathers over objects, I used a paint brush handle and the side of a paper plate and just draped them in various positions. So cute and simple. Would also be a fun project to do with the kiddos.

Happy Creating!
