Sometimes seeing your family in a very cute format makes you feel cheerful. At the beginning we created very small family with mum, dad and a baby, but then my second boy offered me to add our baby and his big brother. I hadn’t realized until that moment that he created his own family. So it turned out our weekend fun to craft our family who was enjoying hammock in a forest on a rainy day. 😊
I have many reasons to love autumn. Nature prepares us for winter with its warm colors. I think my favorite is to make autumn crafts, because it is very easy to find materials in nature during fall season.
Nature makes everything look adorable, right?! You can prepare your own card to send on special days to your besties. ❤️ Or you can put this little art into a tiny frame to hang on the wall. 🌼🌼🌼 Don’t forget to drop a lovely note under your craft!
Spring is the best time to observe nature and see the new life of plants growing under melting snow. Blossoms always send us positive energy while sending off long and dark winter days. Make a spring craft to welcome spring.
Acorns are great for making DIY decorations. This time we used nail polishes to color them.
After dressing up the acorns with fabrics, we decided to use yarns to wrap some acorns, too. They turned out so beautiful and as everyone said they really looked like colorful lights. Using a piece of branch we turned them into a nice DIY decoration.
Some activities are really like a therapy. While creating, your mind is getting relax. Leaf doodling is really too much fun. You can use metallic paint markers to doodle and if you want them to look shiny, you can use nail polishes as we did. They turned out very cute bookmarks.
I feel very happy when my kids come to me with an idea. One day when I went to pick up my son from kindergarten, I saw an acorn in his hand and asked to him about his plan with this acorn and he said to me that he was planning to glue googly eyes on it and then be friend with it.
Painting a pine cone is not as easy as it seems actually, but the result is perfect so it is really worth. Especially if the paint meets with the glitter then pine cones turn into a fabulous crafts. They are hanged on our outdoor wall and look awesome.
As craft lovers, autumn is our favourite season, because it is the hit time to find many different colors and resources in the nature. Luckily in Finland there are hundreds of forests and one of them is just a few steps away from our home. Acorns are great for crafting and creating DIY ornaments.
