06. Nature: Back to Nature

Many craft materials are found naturally, such as cork, rubber, and grapevine. Many others are derived from natural components like plastics from oil; some paints from milk, and dyes from plant materials. See how you can gather things right in your own backyard to create "natural" crafts. Projects include: How to Grow a Crayon - Learn the step-by-step process for making crayons from soybeans - what could be more natural? Seed Topiary - Gather seeds and beans to create a geometric design in a clay pot. Learn how to divide and measure a round object the easy way, using rubber bands; Nature Book - Create a personal journal for your thoughts and ideas. The cover design borrows plants and twigs from nature along with a fun foiling technique; Rock Zoo - Collect all sorts of rocks to make a whole zoo of animals. Paints, eyes, and trims complete these critters; Reflections of Nature - Sunglasses reflect your memories of a favorite outdoor place. Soybean crayons complete the natural theme; Hands On Project - How do you get ideas for craft projects that might help someone else? Take a few minutes to brainstorm on a project you might be able to try. 01/07DE PI 30 min.
