Colorful Feathers

Colorful feathers are a very simple craft and interesting sensory activity with great visual results. Simply draw on white feathers with fabric markers. There is no right or wrong way, and you can choose whatever colors you’d like. A more advanced method uses Sharpie markers to draw with, then dilutes the ink with a few drops of rubbing alcohol, tie-dye style. The feathers can be placed in wreaths, or in a vase for seasonal décor, or glued to a pin-back for a festive corsage to wear to holiday dinners.

Make it, then share pics: #ACMooreInspired.
