Our latest toymaking project, inspired by the life giving Springtime!
A peek-a-boo sprite!
They live in the trees and only come out when they are ready to cause jolly mischief:)
I was inspired to create these little sprites after a windstorm blew branches down from the trees at the Rose Garden near our home.
That, and countless games of peek-a-boo here in our home lately:)
If you have a hole drill, a thick tree branch, some metal hinges, and a wooden peg doll, you can create this sweet little plaything.
Screwing in the hinges was a bit tricky, and I've got some troubleshooting to do before I start gifting them for Easter!
I also found that they make beautiful flower vases...a cute (and very budget friendly!) addition to a nature table, for sure!
I don't think I'll be filling them with water for fresh flowers, but rather using them for dried sprigs...
*By the way, how do you feel about dried flowers? Personally, I've always loved them. I remember my mother requesting for me to take down the myriads I had in my bedroom growing up...hanging from the posts of my beloved canopy bed, etc. She thought they were giving me an allergy!*
Buddha and our breakfast cereal on top of the fridge.
He also doubles as a secret candy stash location...
(I love sweets so much it's almost a little frightening...)
Spring is coming, and we feel its breath.
It feels incredible and promising.
