Winter is a great time for crafting, and nature can be a wonderful source of inspiration. Here are 10 nature crafts you can do with your family in the winter:

  1. Pinecone bird feeders: Spread peanut butter on pinecones, roll them in birdseed, and hang them outside for the birds to enjoy.

  2. Ice ornaments: Fill small plastic containers with water, add natural materials such as berries or leaves, and freeze. Once frozen, remove the containers and hang the ice ornaments outside.

  3. Winter wreaths: Use natural materials such as pinecones, evergreen branches, and holly berries to create a beautiful winter wreath for your front door.

  4. Snow globes: Fill a mason jar with water, add glitter and small natural objects such as pinecones or berries, and glue the lid on tightly. Shake the jar to create a snow globe effect.

  5. Winter solstice lanterns: Using a paper lantern or mason jar, add branches, pinecones, and other natural materials. Place a candle or battery-operated light inside to create a beautiful winter lantern.

  6. Birch bark candle holders: Peel thin layers of birch bark and wrap them around glass jars. Place a candle inside for a beautiful natural candle holder.

  7. Snowflake window clings: Mix equal parts of glue and water and use a paintbrush to paint snowflakes on wax paper. Once dry, peel the snowflakes off and stick them to your windows.

  8. Winter birdhouses: Build or decorate birdhouses using natural materials such as bark, branches, and pinecones. Hang them outside for birds to take shelter in during the winter.

  9. Ice lanterns: Fill a bucket with water and freeze it. Once frozen, remove the bucket and carve a hole in the top. Place a candle inside for a beautiful ice lantern.
