Atmospheric decorations for Advent

Designs using natural materials

Nature provides lots of materials that are perfect for crafting and designs – whether it be acorns and chestnuts, which children enjoy using to create figures, or fir cones which can be used to create atmospheric Advent decorations. In autumn and winter in particular, there is an abundance of natural materials perfect for decorative DIY projects. We show you how to make an impressive wall decoration from dried flowers, walnuts and a large leaf, with the help of edding permanent spray. The acrylic paint spray is particularly suitable for use on natural materials, as the spray can reach into even the smallest nooks and crannies.
