Can anyone recommend some natural-ish crafts made mostly by kids for an art auction/fair fundraiser? Ideas you’ve made or have seen would be much appreciated. I need ideas that are both traditionally Waldorf  and/or would appeal to a non-Waldorf but natural/crunchy community. Also, things that are simply beautiful in their own right sell well too.


Some ideas we are already doing:

Rolled beeswax candles with pretty packaging  (young kids)

Handmade pinatas with watercolor accents (artichoke, strawberry) (young kids)

Dried flowers decoupaged on a coordinating watercolor, framed (mixed age)

Upcycled wool crafts (dryer balls, trivets)

Anything needle felted is usually popular. Knitted bunnies. Hand dyed yarn. Fairy/gnome homes.
