Ok lovely mamas….here is a little spring crafting to start the season.
Seasonal crafts are a beautiful way to celebrating the season and to bring the season into our home. This little butterfly wand would be beautiful on your seasonal nature table or used as a little prop when storytelling or
They would also make a beautiful parent craft activity for a parent/ child playgroup or at a crafting circle or even a gorgeous addition to the birthday table! (You can read more about creating meaningful birthday rituals + rhythms here)
I’m imagining a beautiful big vase of them with lots of cherry blossom stems flying in the breeze at a spring fair or spring festival to be handed out to the children…..so much magic!!!
Materials you will need:
Wool felt scraps
Embroidery thread/ floss
A foraged stick from mother nature
some ribbons of your choice….I love to use silk ribbons
optional – cotton thread or waxed cotton to make the antennas – the thin kind you use for a sewing machine.
+ Sewing basics – needle, pins + scissors
I’ve created a video tutorial below to walk you through the steps to making one of these sweet little butterfly wands.
If you are new to creative making, I’m planning on sharing a simple sewing series with my favourite materials, stitches and other tips and techniques to get you started making beautiful handmade things for your children. Leave me a comment if there is anything in particular you’d love to learn or know more about.
I really hope you enjoy and please leave a comment and let me know if you make one or if you have any questions.
My story dolls for creative play e-course is coming up…..jump on the wait list here.
Hi I’m Natalie,
I teach Mums mothering arts + homemaking, so that they can create a home life that deeply nourishes their children while re-igniting their JOY in the monotony of motherhood.
