Do you ever just get in the mood to craft?
On these days I often end up roaming the isles of Hobby Lobby or AC Moore. Usually I can find inspiration a new baggie of beads for making a necklace or a decorative piece of wood to paint and decorate. Browsing through a craft store can be as addictive for me as a seed catalog or bookstore.
But today I had a new idea- look to nature for my inspiration! Why not combine two of my favorite hobbies? And if listen to some good music while I complete these projects, and write about it at the same time, I'll cover pretty much be doing all my favorite things at once. Bliss!
If you have any ideas, please share! Here's a couple I have in mind:
1. Make a "winter boquet" of dried stems, evergreen leaves, dried grasses, or whatever else I can find outdoors.
2. Press some colored leaves between wax paper and iron to preserve some of the last remnants of fall color.
3. Make some Christmas ornaments by painting pinecones
4. Try making a candle with leaf imprints.
