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.

I have been noticing more and more great nature-related art and craft projects lately, including these I found by doing a simple search on Pinterest.

(knitted pumpkin, made by me several years ago)

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.

Little Forest Quilt

Sewn Bird Ornaments

Pine Tree Sachets

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!
