First, find a forked stick, large or small, which should not be hard to do in any wooded area.
Get some yarn, twine, rope or hemp cord and tie one end to the stick.
You can use any color you want. We tend to keep colors somewhat neutral, or nature-y, and let the *finds* be the focal point. And sometimes we will use yellow or green yarn depending upon our mood.
Wrap the yarn back and forth, doubling it around each side to keep it taut. Tie it at the top when finished.
Go exploring and collect nature items and weave them through the twine. We like to start with grasses or a dried flower with a long stem and weave in and out. The more you weave in and out, the more taut it becomes and will easily *hold* objects like acorns and pinecones.
A pretty decoration for the porch, don't you think?
or for inside on the wall
We LOVE to make them to showcase our glorious finds from Nature. We have a big one leaning against the wall in the corner of the kitchen with a vacated wasp nest on a Beech tree branch.
Perhaps YOU will want to make a Nature Weaving!
Please share if you do, we would love to see it!
