Windcatcher craft (Decorating with natural materials)





Make a windcatcher with natural materials
You will need
twine
apples
nuts
some dried leaves
sturdy branch

For the nut apple windcatcher you first cut a string of twine as long as you like your windcatcher to be. Start with the apple, wrap twine around its stem and then add leaves and nuts as you go up the string. Tie the string around the nuts (use glue if you would like) for the leaves poke a little hole in the leave feed the string through it. Once you have enough leaves and nuts ont he string, tie it onto the branch. You can choose how long each string is and how many across you want to do. Last wrap some string around each end of the branch to form a loop where you can hang the branch from. Et Voila!
When you are done using the mobile you can hang it outside for the squirrel and birds to eat. Talk about eco friendly! I hope you are enjoying the cooler weather and the change of seasons. Linking up here and at Tipjunkie and Susan's.
