look at this fantastic wind catcher dear hubby received from lion for his earth day birthday back in april!
here’s how we made it!
i found the idea HERE at inspiration laboratories. first, the kids and i went on a nature hike by the river in search of natural treasure we could use on the catchers. i let lion pick and choose his own items and we gathered lots, because i figured more was funner and it gave us room to make mistakes or get even more creative!
at home we let the treasures dry out a bit before we set to work.
i tied up two sticks in the middle to make the X for hanging the other items from. lion painted his natural objects as carefully as any almost three year old would! even poppy wanted in on the painting action!
then i tied up the painted treasures to the X with string and voila!
dude could not have been prouder and dear hubby was quite impressed with this beautiful gift!
happy crafting and wind catching!
