Sometimes, the materials may just simply be fallen leaves, branches, flowers and seedpods, which can considerably be utilized for arts and crafts, not to say they are kind of economical, cost-effective or even, free, requiring only your time and efforts. Many beautiful works of art have been produced using local materials by well-known artists like Raku Inoue, Hannah Bullen-Ryner, and Bridget Beth Collins.

Certainly, although naturally foraged materials make versatile mediums in creating charming portraits and sculptures, artist Suzie Grieve has discovered a new technique in utilizing invasive plants and weeds. In addition to protecting native and plant species by gathering invasive plant species that are typically categorized as nuisances, she offers a fresh spin on traditional basket weaving.
