This week’s Unplugged Project theme was wood. Our project began with a snowy trek through the trees on our property in search of twigs and small branches. The winter winds had knocked down many pine branches, so they were easy to find. We gathered a few pine cones too. The plan: Fairy Houses!!
We’ve done this before in the summer when more materials were available (leaves, moss, petals, etc.) which made for quite luxurious accommodations. But since there was snow today, these will have to be rather austere, winter fairy houses.
As you can see from the photos, the dogs did a wood project too…romping through the wood-s.
Here are our gathered materials:
Plus some cardboard bases, some string, and a hot glue gun.
My husband was happy to operate the glue gun and glued whatever needed to be glued. I was the string expert and helped tie string.
Here is the process and result:
My daughter then placed the fairy houses in the garden for the fairies to enjoy.
What did you do for wood? If you joined us, please put your link in Mr. Linky (and a comment in case I have to take him off – so we can still find you to visit). If you didn’t join us but are simply lurking, why not “delurk” and put your link in, either this week or next? If you don’t have a blog, you can still join in…read about the non-blog options at my Unplugged Project page.
Next week’s project:
Eggs (for Easter, or spring/birth if you don’t celebrate Easter)
Please join us with your ideas for eggs!
