Fall Crafts Made from Nature

It's the season here for pine cones, acorns, walnuts, wild flowers, thistles, cattails, etc., these are all things found in nature that we can collect (for free!), then dry or preserve, and save for use in our winter crafts.


For example, all sizes of pine cones can be used to make a pine cone wreath. Small pine cones can be spray painted silver and gold and put in a little wicker basket as a pretty winter decoration. Larger pine cones can be rolled in (cheap generic) peanut butter and then (bulk/generic) birdseed and hung out in the winter for the birds when they need energy food.

Other examples might be: wreaths made of acorns and walnuts hot-glued to a straw wreath, dried wild flowers used in floral wreaths and arrangements, cornhusk dolls from the husks on late corn. The possibilities are almost endless.
