Craft Project: "Flower" Twig Vase

I make flowers from acorns and twigs found in my yard.

Approximate Time: 1 hour

Supplies:

  • glue gun
  • pine cones
  • small plastic jar
  • wild moss
  • mini acorns
  • about 14 small branches
    Ad
  • wild ivy
  • rubber band or ribbon
  • about 4 long branches

Instructions:

Collect about 14 small branches. Cut to same length or longer than jar. Collect about 3 pine cones, and some ivy. Strip ivy of all leaves, this will be wrapped around jar of branches.

Trim branches to same length, lay across side by side. Intertwine ribbon then tie ends around jar. Glue each branch.

With the last 4 branches, make stems. Cut across tips. Measure the length desired then cut floral tips off pine cones, these will be the petals. Glue pine cone tips then with mini acorns, cut in half and placed in the middle of the petals. Arrange flowers in vase. Use twine to wrap around jars. I use wild moss for filling.

I actually find this very cool! Well done. I can see where this would be a great foraging and creating project with a wide varied age-group of kids, get them appreciating making new from what is provided, and oh yeah! The imagination they have lost while watching aimless hours of t.v. and video games.
