15 Crafts Inspired by the Great Outdoors

With the weather already turning to the warm side, we’ve been finding ourselves outdoors a lot more lately. We recently went on a family hike surrounded by nature. It was wonderful. Living in Seattle with lots of rain, we tend to hibernate for the winter months. So when the sun is out, so are we.

It’s so great to be out in nature, all fresh and pretty. I thought it would be fun to find some nature inspired crafts, to help bring the outdoors indoors.
