Variety of ideas and materials
All tired of stamped souvenirs and figurines for interior decoration? Much more interesting to create original crafts with their own hands. New ideas are usually inspired from each other, sharing the technology of making crafts at master classes. Sometimes nature itself tells us a theme for creating a beautiful thing. In skillful hands, even a simple snag can turn, for example, into an exquisite candlestick, and the old disk into an interesting panel.
What surrounds us gives us material for making jewelry. On a walk in the woods you just have to look at your feet. Moss, cones, dry flowers and branches - everything can go to a turn. At home there are a lot of things that you have long wanted to throw away. Disks, boxes, plates, pillows - give them a second life with their own hands.

Crafts from natural material
Environmental friendliness is not less popular trend than hand-made. Natural material always looks spectacular and stylish. What crafts can you create with your own hands from what nature has given us?
Beautiful panels can decorate the walls in the kitchen. Buy a wood frame in the store, insert a cardboard base into it and paint it. It is better to take natural colors to emphasize the subtlety of natural materials. It can be brown, golden and beige.
A beautiful bouquet may appear on the panel, but you need to take care of it in advance. Everything will be used: dried grass, seeds, small cones, twigs, leaves and shells. Put them nicely on the surface of the cardboard and glue it.
Original in the kitchen can look "gastronomic" panel. The basis of the frame divided by small branches into sections. Now we fill these sections with products. One will be beautifully lined with white beans, the other - pumpkin seeds, and the third is completely covered with a thin layer of buckwheat, and so on.
On the eve of the New Year holidays everyone is concerned about the interior decoration. Decorative wreath of cones looks very stylish. It will help create a New Year's mood and become a great gift.
To create the first wreath need large cones of the same size, plastic rings and bending wire. Cones can be pre-gilded or covered with artificial frost. We glue plastic rings on them and string them on a wire, which we give to the shape of a circle. Beautifully distribute the cones and tied on top of a red satin ribbon. The wreath is ready, you can hang it on the door, on the wall in any room, even in the kitchen, or give it to friends.
To make another wreath of cones with your own hands, use the ready-made basics. They are sold in specialized stores. Pre-prime it and stick cones of different sizes, nuts, beads, acorns. Decorate the wreath with linen ribbons or ropes. Silver-plated or gold-plated cones are used as Christmas toys.
A wreath of branches looks no less impressive. Combine thin but long twigs into a thick rope, twist them into a wreath and decorate. It can be dried flowers, dried orange mugs, tiny cones. Just do not overdo it. Excessive decor will look tasteless.
Wood saw cuts

What kind of wood is suitable for blanks? It can be birch, alder, pine, linden, oak, apple and others. Depending on your idea, you can use a different width of the saw cut tree or diagonal. After cutting the tree into cuts, polish them, soak them with oil, varnish or paint. Blanks are ready, it's time to create.
The usual forest snag, a branch of a tree of fancy shape can become an independent decor of an apartment, and can become the basis of a piece of furniture, including in the kitchen. Twisting roots and snags can turn into legs of a table or chair, a hanger, a stand for flowers, candles, a lamp and a vase. This unusual decorative element will be a real designer find.
In the kitchen with small branches you can decorate a flower pot. Pick up little snags a little more than the height of the pot. They should be about the same diameter - from 3 to 5 cm. Take a flax rope and start at the bottom to draw it, fastening the branches. Repeat the same at the top. The edges of the resulting panel connect and put on the pot. It turned out the original pots in a rustic style.
Snags themselves can turn into flowers. Absurd? Not at all. Pick up a fairly smooth branches of beautiful shape, similar to flower stalks. Sand them. The resulting bouquet of tree sagles, put in a floor vase. Add dried flowers about the same height with snags. Places for such decor can not be found in the kitchen, but in the living room an eco-book created with your own hands will surely catch your eye.

You can make a panel of shells on the basis of a disk, linen, cardboard, glass or other scrap materials. Take as a basis a dense cardboard. Cut a heart out of it, stick white paper on the other side and let it dry. First, take a ribbon and attach it to the “dimple” of the heart so that it is convenient to hang it. Next, we will cover the surface of the cardboard with different shells to create a beautiful interior decoration.
