164 – She Shows You 10 Ways to Craft With Pine Cones

Feeling crafty?  Don’t rush out to the store to buy craft components.  The Earth offers some wonderful natural materials to encourage a wide range of artistic expressions.

Red Ted Art Blog has compiled 10 of her favorite ways to get crafty with all natural materials and you can see that post here.  I love that she has included one post about how pine cones can be indicators of the weather.  Posts like this can demonstrate how crafts can be both fun and spark an interest in science and nature at the same time.

Next time you’re feeling crafty – don’t buy – forage!
