Try This: Winter Treasure Chest

Bring some life into your home this winter with a homemade treasure chest.

Look closely at the stalks and twigs of plants. Some, like these boldly striped ones, have riveting colors or patterns. Bark, whether papery or rough, is another lovely texture to include. (Your treasure box shouldn’t be limited by “look-don’t-touch” rules.) Including moss and lichens not only adds unusual color, it entices tactile exploration.
