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.
I should admit that this is the most difficult fall craft we have ever done 🙈🙈🙈
Not as easy as it seems. But the final products are incredibly beautiful. After preparing a leaf template with yarn, fill inside the lines with yarns. Just be patient! 🙂
Have you ever received any DIY card from someone?
I think this is the only thing makes us feel so special because someone is making something only for us which is unique.
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.
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.
Another fall craft idea. It was too much fun for my sons to spray water to color paper leaves. MB loved especially the red crepe paper a lot, because it is really like bleeding. Besides process art, it was a very nice sensory play. With these colored leaves you can make your own garland.
