Winter Nature Table

I recently did a really fun swap with a Waldorf group I belong to on Facebook. The theme was “Winter Nature Table,” which was perfect because I am just getting into doing a nature table (or windowsill, in our case, since space is at a premium in our tiny house). Each participant made six things– five for other moms and one for the hostess. I made a little wooden cardinal, winter-colored mini play silk, and painted cardstock that I printed a cardinal poem on.

This was my first time woodburning, but I think they came out really sweet. I love the heart on the back of each one. The play silks I labelled a different wintery name, like First Frost and Crisp Snow Morning.

Here is what I received back! A little gnome and tree, a woodburned winter scene “postcard”,

Such simply lovely items, I am so glad I could participate. Here is everything in place:winternaturetableswap winternaturetableswap2 winternaturetableswap3

We’ve added a couple other things, too, and it looks very festive and wintery. Do you have a nature table or seasonal display?

  1. Absolutely in love with the hidden heart. I’m hoping to get a wood burning kit for Christmas. πŸ™‚ That garland is wonderful, I can smell it now, and the folded star!

    • Thank you, Miranda! I love to sneak hearts on the backs of my creations. πŸ™‚ The wood burning kit was an early Christmas present from my parents (given early so I had it for the swap!). I love it! I hope you get one, too.

  2. Your cardinals are really nice! The heart was a nice touch.
    Love that garland too.
    Your angels are so cute, their faces are very expressive! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, DJ! πŸ™‚ I’m so glad you like my cardinal and angels! The garland makes me want to make a bunch of my own, too. Kind of reminds me of things Mom would make at Christmas time.
