I love a simple and quick craft that has stunning results…and these DIY Feather Ornaments totally fit the bill.  The pictures hardly do them justice- they have such a light, airy, ethereal feel to them and the lights from the tree make them glow…

The Happy Housie - Simple Stunning DIY Feather Ornaments blue feathers

This is such a quick and easy project that I whipped off 18 of them in about 10 minutes.

To make them you will need:

- glass ornaments (I used faux glass ones from Walmart- real glass wouldn’t survive for long around here)
- feathers
- twine or ribbon to hang them with
- scissors (optional)

The basics:

Start by removing the top from your glass (or faux glass) balls

Stuff the feathers into the ornaments – cutting the base ends of the feathers off if they are too long and hard to bend…

Fill them to taste- you may like the look of only a couple of feathers, or you may wish to fill it with several… it is entirely up to you at this point!

Place the cap back on and you are done!  You just need to add some twine or ribbon to hang them with.

I made some in blue and some in white….

    Love the idea. It might be pretty to add some glitter with the feather and shake it all up. The tree lights should make it sparkle.

    Anything to do with feathers I just love :-D I can’t find any clear baubles down my neck of the woods unfortunately – you are so lucky to have heaps of them :-)

    Krista, this is a really great idea – simple but stunning! Love that I’m getting some inspiration for a big old box of clear ornaments I have sitting here! These look so pretty on your tree! Thanks for sharing and pinning! Have a wonderful Thursday!
