Crafty Mamas, have you ever started out with an idea for a creative project and part way through wondered, “Why on earth am I doing this?” Or is that just me?? Probably. Anyway, this project certainly had more than one why am I doing this again moments.
I have long been fascinated with the idea of having a nature table representing the current season, bring a little outdoors in, something quite common to those adopting a Waldorf approach to early education. Anyway, I thought I start with a Spring nature table, the centrepiece of which would be a branch. But not just any branch. A branch wrapped in wool. I know, right now you are all thinking what the? But stay with me here, okay. I thought it could look quite effective. A bit like this…
That looks kind of cool, right?
The centrepiece of what will be our Springtime nature table. I personally think a branch wrapped in white wool and adorned with tiny silver ornaments would make a stunning centrepiece for a Christmas table. Maybe this wasn’t such a crazy idea after all?
Anyway, now I just need to work out what else to add to our nature table. We have started with a small collection of seedpods and gumnuts.
What would you add (or have you added) as Spring inspiration to your nature table?
