I am try
ing to take a few days off a week to spend purely with family while we get acquainted to our newest addition to the family, Indigo. I have been showered with guest posts from lovely and inspiring bloggers in order to keep this space fresh, creative and insightful. A feel truly blessed to be given such a special present from these talented writers. If you have time, please take a moment to wander through their spaces and say hello.
with love from Maureen and Shanti at Twig and Toadstool
We're so excited to be doing a guest post here at ecoMILF! We understand completely the need for some peace in the early weeks with a new babe...and we're too far away to make a meal, so we thought we CAN help this new mama out by doing a post for her!!! All the best as you enjoy your sweet new babe!
To make a little acorn baby you will need:
2 small wooden beads, 1/2 inch in diameter
2 acorn caps
pipecleaner...about 4 inches long
some wool roving
needle, (for needle felting)
2 pods, (we used milk pods...you may have some more exotic pods in Australia)
glue gun and glue sticks
So...to start you will fold your pipe cleaner in half and glue it in to your wooden bead...like so!
Then take your roving, (in whatever colour you please), and start wrapping it around and around your pipecleaner...
And oh my goodness...here you go...a sweet little baby. Doesn't that little milk pod look cozy?
This is a super easy craft, with a great result!
Happy baby making;)
Thank you so much Maureen!! I adore this little tutorial. Children find such magic in these tiny little babies. There are so many ways to nurture, cuddle and play with them! Thank you very much for sharing with all of us!
