With spring in full swing, I’m looking for any excuse to spend time in the beautiful weather. But I’m always looking for more time to spend crafting. This collection of crafts using products found in nature is the perfect solution. Spend some time outside gathering materials and create something beautiful!

Buttons made from branches?!? How cute! These little embellishments would be a great way to add some rustic charm to a scrapbook page or fabric project.
