Crafting with Nature: Ways to Use Found Objects

During your stay, consider engaging in nature-inspired crafting. Begin by taking a nature walk and collecting interesting objects like pine cones, leaves, fallen wood, and stones. These can be transformed into beautiful and meaningful crafts – souvenirs to bring back home.

  • Try creating a pine cone wreath to hang on your front door, a rustic and charming keepsake.
  • Try pressing collected leaves and flowers between wax paper to make unique nature-bookmarks, a treasure to remember your peaceful retreat.

The simplicity of these crafts not only sparks creativity but it also deepens your connection with the natural world. Thinking outside of the box, going outside of your comfort zone, and making something from organic materials with your own hands all reinforce your connection to nature.

Ignite Your Creative Spirit

Nature has a remarkable ability to unlock creativity and make way for inspiration. Scientific studies suggest that being in a natural environment can enhance cognitive function and spark thinking. When surrounded by the beauty of the farmhouse, creative ideas tend to flow freely.

  • Take a leisurely walk along the well-worn trails or venture to nearby Watauga Lake for more challenging hikes. The 8-9 mile stretch of the Appalachian Trail from Dennis Cove to Watauga Lake offers not only physical exercise but also mental rejuvenation, with picturesque waterfalls and panoramic views providing a perfect backdrop for inspiration.
  • Consider a sunbathing experience in the fields in front of the farmhouse. Pack a large blanket, snacks, sunscreen, plenty of water in a cooler and settle in for a day in the sun. Research states the direct-sunlight exposure feeds a number of critical roles when it comes to optimizing health and mental performance.

These benefits extend to:

  • Improved Immunity and Overall Health with increases of Vitamin D
  • Emotional Regulation
  • Improved Cognitive Function
