Following on from last months Garden Craft round up I thought I?d extend the theme and collate some of the beautiful Nature Crafts that our Britmums bloggers have been writing up.
Natures shapes, texture and colour are fascinating to work with and the crafted pieces are often very simple to make plus of course they?re free! And if you?re kids are anything like mine you won?t be short of twigs, pebbles, shells, leaves, flowers etc to crafts with!
I love the simplicity of these Yarn wrapped sticks from Mum In The Mad House
Growing Family explains how to make nature journey sticks. If you?ve never heard of them pop over to the blog as they are brilliant entertainment for kids when you?re out and about.
Next we have a beautiful flower mandala art from Kids Chaos.
Coffee, Cake, Kids makes some bright textured art using dandelions
and The Creative Pair use flowers to paint a bright flower filled canvas
The Gingerbread House uses sycamore seeds to make some cute fairies.
and PlayLearnEveryDay makes the most beautiful sun catcher using just nature and pva glue!
These brightly coloured stone fishes by Messy Little Monsters are adorable and perfect for using up all those beach pebbles that get collected over the summer.
You could also use stones/pebbles to make amazing pebble art work like this over at ZingZingTree
Keeping with the beach theme Crafts On Sea makes her own salt dough so she can create these serene seashell decorations
Hopefully you?ll now be inspired to look for ways to bring nature into some of your crafts and we?ll see you next time with some more arts & crafts round up fun!
