The Crafted Garden by Louise Curley is a wonderful book for gardeners and crafters, offering 50 seasonal craft projects inspired by the gifts of nature with easy to follow instructions and beautiful photography by Jason Ingram. The Crafted Garden encourages a connection with the seasons, bring the outside in and craft with natures ingredients such as seeds, flowers, sprigs and twigs and create beautiful ornaments and decorations for the home.
From twig and bark pots to edible dinner decorations, there’s a project to inspire everyone to enjoy and celebrate the beauty of nature from the garden and hedgerow. The book also offers great tips for seed saving, drying plants, flower pressing, preserving plants, forcing bulbs and the etiquette of foraging.
My personal favourite project is the foraged fairy, how sweet! I’m completely inspired to make these lovely little decorations for the garden and the house at Christmas time.
The Crafted Garden officially releases on 3rd September 2015, published by Frances Lincoln. I’m delighted to offer my readers the following discount code:
