Nature's (Free!) Art Supplies



During the crisp Fall Season,
while the squirrels and birds are busy
gathering seeds, berries, and nuts for the long Winter ahead,
my girls and I can be found collecting our own
supplies around our neighborhood. 

We are busy 
collecting and gathering
free art supplies! 


Leaves
(pressed and dried in phone books)



Acorns 
(Mostly Acorn Caps)

Walnuts,

Pine Cones,
and
Dry Pine Needles.

With visions of projects like:

Pom-Pom Acorns

Leaf Lanterns

Happy Nature Crafting!

Fondly,
pink and green mama,
