Memories in a bottle
My husband and I have a shared passion for exploring new and exciting places. For some reason, I find the new sights refreshing and much needed when things at work become too stressful. At times when we can't get away, I find that seeing mementos of past adventures help to bring those feelings back. This craft is an easy way to make a memory capsule of your favorite places while not breaking the bank or taking up a lot of storage space in your house. The bottle sizes keep this craft nature-friendly and low-impact to the environment. By the way, I don't recommend putting anything live or stolen in your showcase.
No complicated step-by-step instructions needed! This post comes stress-free, which is great because I am all about easy crafts. All you need to do is:
- HAVE ADVENTURES
- BE A COLLECTOR
- GET CREATIVE WITH YOUR SAMPLES
- INSERT. CORK. LABEL. STORE.
Tip: Try to get a variety of types of samples when you are exploring. I try to get things that are unique from that area. We recently took a train ride through the country in an area that had a lot of pine trees. The dried brown needles were flexible enough to twist together into a 'twirl' shape. I think this one is my favorite ones so far.
LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!
