|Driftwood piece, about 4" high.|
|At the beach|
So, in an inspired solution, I collected driftwood (and one birch log) with my kids this morning, and cut them into 3-6" sections.
|Ends cut flat and drilled.|
After I drilled small holes, I quickly sanded the ends. No splinters, thank you.
Back across the street and into the woods to collect a handful of moss and greens.
(This is Vermont. Beach+park+moss+evergreen forest in about 1/4sq.mi.)
Poke the ends of clipped greens into branches.
At my house they will be clustered together on the table for now, because the holiday isn't here yet. I added a paper flower my son made.
What are you feeling thankful for today? Personally, I am feeling especially thankful for where I live, and that there is such beauty around me. And for Sundays- I am always grateful for Sundays.
|Rather wintery. Maybe I'll paint the ends shades of orange and red?|
Have a Happy and Thankful holiday this week!
