You'll remember your next nature trip long after it's over when you try this nature wall hanging project for kids.
What You'll Need:
- Small objects from nature
- Jute twine
- Four sticks or twigs
- Craft glue
- Wire or small hooks
When you go on a nature hike, collect small objects such as twigs, grasses, flowers, nuts, bark and shells. When you get home, you can weave all the objects together to make an artistic record of your trip.
First, make a frame for your artwork. Tie together four twigs or sticks to make a square or rectangle. Next wrap natural jute twine around the frame. Use the twine as a base on which to mount all the other objects.
You can weave them through the twine, use small hooks or pieces of wire to hook them on, or glue them on. You could attach the objects to the frame in the order you found them or in an artistic design.
Either way, you'll have a unique "diary" of your trip.
