How to Decorate your Home with Nature

by Sarah - Craft Invaders

We love to decorate our home with elements of nature. The shapes, forms and textures of the natural world are wonderful to craft with, readily available, and can inspire some really wonderful projects. Once you start looking you will find inspiration everywhere!

As with any sort of foraging, be mindful of what you are picking and where you are collecting from. Ensure you are not causing lasting damage to living plants, and always gain permission before foraging on private land. Below are 3 wonderful craft projects to bring a bit of nature into your home.
