Overview

The vibrant color and beauty in the natural world has inspired artists and crafters for centuries. Now, with so much more material available throughout the year, the splendor of nature can be used to full advantage and in a variety of ways.

This beautiful seasonal book celebrates the bounty of spring and summer in decorative crafts and projects for the home. In spring, we have fresh blossoms and flowers displayed in all their glorious beauty, while another potent symbol of spring, the egg, is embellished and decorated to make charming arrangements. Spring is also the time for nests and feathers and the projects in this book will help you create lasting evocations of the season with table decorations, mini nests and stunning simple feather pictures. The beauty of a countryside walk can be captured permanently in your own home with a splendid cornflower obelisk and a lovely wild barley ring.

The warm glow of summer, with its long evenings and eagerly anticipated vacations, is echoed in projects that use delicate seashells, robust fresh herbs, pressed leaves and the season's fabulous floral abundance. Use a visit to the beach to collect pretty pebbles and pieces of driftwood and when you are home again make a driftwood mirror frame or a beautifully elegant oyster candle ring for the dinner table.

With an introduction to the materials needed and how to use them, this book is not only a source of practical inspiration, but also a celebration of the natural world. Use the delightful and original projects in the volume to capture the spirit of the season in contemporary and enchanting ways, and welcome the wild into your own home.
