After our nature walk last weekend, I felt inspired to make a nature crown using the berries that we had gathered. Last Monday morning when I should have been answering emails, and organising my week ahead, or washing up and sorting the house out a bit, I decided to take some time to be creative and ignore all of those other tasks that needed doing.
Here is what I made…
I recently watched Kirsten Rickert’s video that she shared on how to make a leaf crown. Whilst listening to her she said something that jumped out at me about how the hands just know how to make. That observation stayed with me and I think she is absolutely right. If you set a clear intention, and can stop the mind over-thinking, then the hands are free, and have a natural instinct about what needs to be done in order to create and make.
Bailey had so much fun wearing her nature crown, and without me saying anything she slipped into the role of a queen. Her imagination is so brilliant, that really she could have been wearing a saucepan on her head and she would know how to pretend. However, this home-made nature crown made it easy to play at being royal. I wore it for a bit and soon felt regal – after all, the berries do look like real jewels.
