Last month I was inspired to use our egg dyes to dye wool also. The turmeric was just too pretty to not use again.
Our results left us with beautiful yellow, and a peachy pink that will work for certain projects that wont need to be washed. Now we had our wool, and I couldn't think of what to do with it. I know lots of things we could do with it... I just didn't know what I wanted to do....
Finally May came with a simple answer... flowers for my May Table! This was the perfect project for a worn out, too pregnant mama. Everyone could get involved, easy, and instant gratification. Have I mentioned before how much I love instant gratification when working with children? I do.
We dug into my roving stash, wrapped strips of wool around branches, and the results were better than I could have imagined. I really need to thank The Magic Onions for the inspiration here and here!
Here's to a simple craft that is fun to make, and then use!
As always, special thank you to The Magic Onions for bringing us together each and every Friday.
