nature inspired crafts Crafting with Hemp Twine and Other Natural Elements
From textiles to biomass mixed fuels, hemp twine has thousands of uses in the industrial world. Because it’s so easy to work with, affordable, durable, and environmentally friendly, hemp twine is a favorite material for crafters and jewelry makers, too.

By mastering a few simple knots and closure techniques, you can create unique, one-of-a-kind knotted bracelets to expand your personal jewelry collection, or to share with family and friends. While many of the patterns you’ll find online are for bracelets and necklaces, there’s no need to stop there. Let your creativity run wild to make belts, headbands, curtain tie-backs, or even dog collars.

While you’re at it, why not incorporate a few natural elements into your home décor? As environmentally friendly as they are beautiful, renewal materials require minimal (if any) processing. Add a few rustic touches to any space with these popular natural crafting products:

Grapevine:
Use as a base for greenery or silk flowers, or display as-is for palpable texture.

Seashells:
Relive your last trip to the beach by adding a few seashells to your décor. Use them to decorate jewelry boxes and jewelry, to make magnets and candlescapes, or simply scatter throughout and enjoy.

Nature Walk Treasures:
Hit the trails and collect pinecones, feathers, rocks, twigs, and bark to use for tablescapes, natural bouquets, or other outdoorsy crafts.

The sky’s the limit when it comes to nature-inspired crafts. Enjoy flexing your creative muscles while making these environmentally friendly projects.
