Only a few weeks away until the Summer is finally here and to celebrate the solstice, christmas and all our other favourite holidays, family Rainbow wanted to enjoy this holiday time mindfully.
Our love for mumma earth is always our drive, especially this time of year where consuming becomes the norm. We like to celebrate with open hearts.
Our first project, was the Tree.
We have been collecting old pallets for a while now for all sorts of upcycled projects we have created around the home like pallet vege garden walls, furniture and assisting with the kitchen reno. But this time they were to be used for our Solstice/Christmas tree.
Here are the step by step instructions:
Now the decorations!! Three hearts for three bubbins were made from felt with just one word that represented the meaning of christmas to ourselves was our mantra as we sewed. Togetherness, Kindness and Happiness.
5 Silver bows hand made together to represent our bond as a family. Silver tape was recycled from Remida.
Finger knitted and newspaper fans on hemp string buntings added that extra special gift to our tree. With cardboard painted shapes, recycled paper snow flakes, reefs made from unused cardboard puzzles and clay ornaments filled our tree with life.
A solstice tree with meaning, love and one in which wont cost the earth.
Happy Solstice to you all.
