In college I took an Art History class. One of my final projects was a shadow box. I love this form of art expression!
When I make nature tables or shadow boxes, I usually buy new fabric to line it with and add some kind of fun embellishment or two. Once the table is ready we begin to create. We usually only add things from nature, hence the name Nature Table.
Our nature table reflects whatever season we are living. The kids love adding to it over the months with treasures from outside. It is like an evolving, growing work of art that everyone adds to for however long you decide to have it out. I love to honor nature in this way and revel in the beauty of the natural world through this project.
