Are you looking for nature display ideas? You’ve come to the right place! I’m Susan Evans, your homeschool organization guru, and today I’m going to show you how to organize a beautiful nature display.
- First you will need some sort of wooden shelf with compartments. I got mine at a yard sale for $3.
- It had no backing on it, so I went to the store and bought a posterboard that was black and very stiff. (You can also use black velvet board.) The black color really pops to help make your display look gorgeous, by the way.
- I cut the posterboard to size. Then I used an industrial stapler to stick it to the back of the display. (You can use the industrial stapler for other home decorating projects, so I recommend getting one.)
- After I had the backing on the display, I wanted something strong to hold it up because you’re going to have nature collections that include objects that are heavy. So you want a heavy-duty wire, and then use your industrial stapler to staple the wire into both sides on the edges.
- Here are some items you can have in a nature display: fossils, a bird’s nest, rocks and minerals, feathers, animal sculls, snake skins, pine cones, seeds, seashells, moss, old cocoons, blue egg shell from robins, etc.
- The items are just leaned up against the back. If you don’t want the items to slip down, you can put a little tiny dab of hot glue on the back that would hold it in place.
Now you have a nifty, fabulous nature display area for your homeschool. If you would like more ideas on Organizing for a Fun Homeschool, I have a two-hour video workshop where I show you every room in my house just like this. Go check it out!Tweet
