DIY Thanksgiving Cornucopia

As we celebrate Thanksgiving with our loved ones later this week, I wanted to take a moment and give thanks to each and every one of you.  Home has so many special meanings to me and my flocks, both feathered and human.  It is incredibly symbolic for so many reasons and having you part of this blog has brought great joy, comfort, inspiration and lessons not only into my life but to many others who visit each week.

Make a Mum Chain

A crown fit for a princess

I love making Daisy chains in the summertime. I have fond memories of making them as a child and now I’ve taught my children how to make them. We enjoy fashioning them into necklaces, bracelets, anklets and crowns. Mum chains are a great way to take a break from raking leaves on a fall day or to help celebrate an outing of pumpkin or apple picking. Did you know that Mums (short for Chrysanthemum), are in the same family as the Daisy? Their stems are incredibly similar to Daisies, which helps to explain why they work so well. There are a few ways to make Mum chains. I would like to share how I learned to make them as a little girl.
