(Suggestions to simply enhance to bring more beneficial aromatherapy when placing in the home are essential oil diffusers, freshly dried orange slices, soft peppermint sticks, evergreen cuttings, or cinnamon clove bundles.)
Week 2 Tree Ornaments: Hand beaded & frosted Farmers’ Market Fruits– On Artisan Jewelry Day at Bluebird Market, the ancient jewelry practices of lovely hand-beaded ornaments featured our Farmers’ Market organic harvest. Apples, pears, grapes, oranges and limes (artificial) were coated in glue and then rolled in bright colored glass seed beads. Children enjoyed dusting grapes with sugar frosted glitter.
