As you can probably tell by looking at what we love to pin, you will know we have a soft spot for beautiful backdrops and wall hangings. Lucky us who get to share another gem created by Kathryn Godwin, and lucky you who get the how to! Thank you Lime Green Photography for the images. This clay pod backdrop would also look totally adorable as a mobile in a nursery too! The texture that the clay + branch combo gives is delish.

1. Roll balls of Model Magic to a diameter of a quarter
2. Using your thumbs, gently start to push the center of ball, knead the clay into a dome or shell shape.
3. Allow clay to dry for 24-48 hours. Don’t allow clay pods to touch each other before they are dry.
4. Cut twine, thread needle and knot at end. Pod strands can cascade at various lengths, or be kept a consistent length for a more graphic presence.
5. Push needle through center of pod and pull to the knot.
6. Tie the next not 2-3 inches away from pod, and repeat step 5.
7. Leave 5-6 inches at the top of the pod strand to allow for tying off to a tree branch or a dowel rod.
Sabrena Robinson made a video from the project, you have to watch the inspiration that goes with it come to life:
