Afternoon! Fall is just around the corner and  fall always makes me want to get crafty. For the record, I'm not a big crafter. I'm not big into making my own soap or crayon art. When, however, September rolls around my inner Martha Stewart can't be caged. Martha is one of my favorite people. She has taken creating and glitter to a whole new level. She is a solid self made business woman who continues to capitalize on getting people  to create. In short, I like her style.

Today, let's channel our inner Martha and create this quick fall project that will add a little spice to September, golden glitter feathers. Martha undoubtedly would use fabulous feathers, from a golden goose, only located by boat on the island of Greenwich. She would most likely lovingly gather each perfect feather into a hand woven baskets made by natives. I'm not Martha, so all the supplies for today's project are available either on Amazon or your local craft store.

Golden Glitter Feathers

Step 1: Cover work surface. Tape off the tips of the feathers. Add the paint to the paper plate or pallet.

Step 2: With the paint brush, paint the feathers with the pale bronze paint.

Step 3: Sprinkle the glitter on the tips of the feather and let dry for about 30 minutes.

Step 4: Hot glue a few feathers on a grape vine wreath or string them up with twine. Place them in a glass vase or lay them in a dish. Watch them sparkle and usher in fall.

Enjoy the golden feathers and see to tomorrow all you Martha wannabes!
