I like to do nature crafts - every once in awhile. Which I do consider art. Here I've made a Dreamcatcher from stuff around the yard and some items from my art studio.
I used sticks from the ficus hedge out back and settled on a triangular shape, since I couldn't find any bendy sort of sticks to form into a circle.
I haven't woven anything since summer camp, many moons ago, so I'm not surprised my weave was a bit loose. But I've learned now to keep it tight as I wind around making the web pattern.
Also used some feathers that my brother found in the woods for me, a beautiful pink shell I found on the beach with a hole already in it for hanging. And then just some leather strips, burlap, some tie dye fabric and some fringe from an old hammock.
I didn't really think about it, I just threw together whatever I had around that looked like it'd work. And yes, I'm part Hippie, haha!
