Last year I made some Christmas tree ornaments from nature and loved seeing their simple, natural faces on our tree. I decided that the next year I would strive for a tree glowing, all most entirely, with nature's beauty! I have had so much fun planning some nature inspired ornaments over the last weeks and look forward to sharing them with you as they come to life!
Here is my first
~ An acorn birds nest ~
To craft these wee wonders you will need
Small beans (we used soy)
Glue gun and glue
Robin blue paint
To begin paint your beans blue
Tip ~ I discovered that by painting on tinfoil, it keeps the beans from sticking as they dry.
Next put a dab of glue inside your acorn top and add the moss
Add your eggs with a dab of glue on each
With your glue gun draw a fine line of glue across the bottom of the acorn and up the sides. Carefully place your string into the glue and tie at the top to hang.
Oh the magic in miniatures...
For now our wise winter wizard is caring for our nest until the tree arrives.
May all your preparations in this season be filled with peace
~ Shanti ~
