If you’re like me, Nature is mesmerizing! What is more beautiful than God’s handwork? Not only do I love nature in all its glory, but I LOVE decorating my house! I’m not a millionaire, so I don’t have endless cash to spend on home decor; and honestly, I probably wouldn’t any way.
Yard clippings, fallen branches, sea shells, bark, pine cones… I mean the possibility is truly endless. I always find myself dragging some treasure I’ve found meandering around and usually find something to make out if it!
This is my latest project, a wreath made of palm frond droppings! I have 3 HUGE palm trees in my yard and they are constantly seeding and reseeding leaving behind an abundance of wonderfulness!! See what they look like in their natural form here :
As you can see, they are fabulous alone or clipped and gathered and wired to form a wreath! It was sooo easy! Here’s how I did it:
Gathered the clippings so that the bend of the fiber was flowing in the same direction.
Next, I just started attaching in the same direction using floral wire.
The best part for me, NO HOT GLUING! Although I love hot glue in all its crafting glory, I always and I mean always burn myself!!
After about 45 minutes, I’ve got myself a beautiful wreath made by nature and assembled by me!!
The possibilities truly are endless. Go for a nice long walk, you never know what you might find! Below I’ll attach some of my other finds from nature. If you make something fabulous, please share! We love to see cool ideas!! Happy hunting!
