A Woven Summer
Several weeks ago my friend Julie introduced us to this project at our Earth Scout meeting.
I had never seen it, and loved it.
I thought maybe I wasn't the only one who hadn't done it, and thought I would share it here.
(With Julie's permission.)
This project only calls for sticks, yarn or vines, and flowers or leaves.
We made ours with wool that we had dyed, and hand-spun by us. :) A favorite part!
We wove our yarn into our y-shaped sticks
and then gathered favorite pretties from our gardens
and wove them into our sticks.
This would make a lovely charm or blessing for the summer garden...
It would also be a lovely momento from a favorite nature walk, camping trip, or summer vacation, don't you think?
I think we'll save ours for our first bonfire of the autumn season... a lovely way to say goodbye to the summer!
