Natural Embellishments

Every natural thing can easily be overlooked or taken for an eye sore. All of the landscape down here is pretty cookie-cutter and finely tuned, so much that you forget what a real abandoned piece of land really looks like until you stumble upon it. Lately, our treasure hunts have consisted of gathering natural elements, arranging them, and putting them together to make a gorgeous, unique display.

Palm tree fronds are so unique and often taken away right when they fall….and that’s when see me chasing down the maintenance truck 😀

There so many different crafty things you can do with these gorgeous elements! For example I made 2 Easter centerpieces with Spanish moss that I picked from the tree, white wooden eggs, birds and Butterflies from Hobby Lobby, and pine cones that I gathered on my hikes. I used polyurethane to keep everything intact and prevent aging and whatnot.

It was so much fun, and rewarding to make.
