I'm putting together a fun little project... a centerpiece to celebrate the beautiful autumn weather we've been having in Alabama for the past few weeks. It's simple to make and collecting all the elements can be done over time, so the project changes as the season progresses.
I went on a nature walk to collect some long twigs, pine cones, seed pods, and acorns. When I returned home, I scrounged up an empty coffee can, covered the outside with scrap booking paper, and filled the can 2/3 of the way with small rocks. I hung my little nature treasures with crochet thread and dried some orange slices (225 F in my oven) to add some color.
I plan to add more items as I go and some small, colorful ornaments will look pretty in December!
I just love the velvety seed pods! They are from some type of bushy/viney plant, but I'm not sure what it is!
Now I need to make some more apple cinnamon spice tea and enjoy the rest of my autumn crafternoon!
