Nature Arts and Crafts
I’ve been so focused on learning how to draw and be a graphic designer and illustrator these past couple years that I haven’t done much crafting, except for making ornaments for my annual exchanges. I’ve shared many nature photographs and pages of leaf illustrations in my sketchbook.

Here are a few projects that I’ve moved to the top of my list of things to make:
Tree Stump Coaster by A Beautiful Life
Feather Butterfly Wreath by A Beautiful Life
Feather Crown by A Beautiful Life, which would be so fun to wear as part of a costume
Fall Leaves Wreath by Alisa Burke
Altered Driftwood by Alisa Burke, which she used to fill up this large glass jar. She also used some pieces to turn into a mobile hanging in her art studio.
Fern Fabric by Alisa Burke, which she made into a striking set of patchwork placemats for their table.
A couple years ago, I took a series of online classes to make Christmas ornaments and decorations. Some of my favorite projects were using felt, like these Christmas trees.
I’ve made these projects by the Purl Bee in the past for Christmas presents and ornament exchanges. I liked them so much that I might make them again.
If you have a nature art or craft-related tutorial or project you would like to share, please leave the link in the comments. I would be thrilled to add them to my growing list. Thanks for stopping by!
