These hanging pottery feathers are a surprisingly simple DIY project. If you are looking to add a whimsical element to your home decor, try this fun and simple craft yourself.

When making your own hanging pottery feathers, first you need to roll out the clay to about 1/4″ thick. Cut the feather shapes out of the clay using sculpting tools. Remember, the finished product will look better if no two feathers are exactly the same. Bake the clay in the oven for about 30 minutes or until the pottery feathers are solid. After they are cool, you can hand-paint them or use stencils to add romantic and whimsical details.

The finished pottery feathers have many uses. You can hang them from trees or use them as place settings at a dinner party. No matter what you do with them, be sure to tell people you made them yourself.
