Gardener's Craft Companion: Simple, Modern Projects to Make with Garden Treasures
Nature crafts are about to get a whole new look -- as garden-made decorating items go "modern."
A Gardener's Craft Companion takes readers beyond tired old wreaths and dried flower arrangements to exciting nature crafts that exude a fresh and contemporary look and feel. Using a variety of simple techniques, readers will learn how to create petal picture frames using colorful flowers and fruit, brilliant glass votive candle holders laminated with pressed botanicals and paper, wake-up soaps scented with herb energizers like rosemary and mint, and much more.
This savvy guide covers all the botanical basics (store-bought versus garden-grown materials, tips on plants to use, growing, drying, and storing instructions), and provides a gallery of easy, garden-inspired decorating ideas -- from slipping dried flowers into a tablerunner to sun-printing pretty storage boxes.
Packed with low-stress, high-impact projects, this is the perfect craft how-to for modernizing any garden decor.
