*** yup, I made that up. But it could be, don’t you think?
Have a fun and flower filled Halloween, flower buddies
Weave a spider from lily grass... and reposition it every so often for a creative Halloween twist.
Both pretty and pretty effective. Keep the flowers exactly where you want them by weaving a stopper for your bud vase.
It's sometimes difficult to place a tiny crystal or bead exactly where you want it.
My Chameleon is mono-botanical. Made from coiled grass
Weave grasshoppers or butterflies (or fireflies) from palm leaves
Made from dried cherry twigs and a skeleton leaf.
When suspending items under water it is convenient to add a tiny magnet so that you can reposition it if the water distorts the lines of your design
The word ‘Besom’ derives from the old English ‘besma’ meaning ‘bundle of twigs’.
Eerie! Because you use what is there already in the twigs this skeleton looks rather... realistic!
Beautiful blossoms don’t NEED much to make it into a lovely design. But the start of Spring might just inspire you to add a bit much… just because it makes you happy.
It deserves a bowl all of it's own... right? I am (of course!) talking about these spectacular little sweet peas called King Tut. Not much else is needed. But add a cute little...
Take a handful of grass... but then add just enough design to make it interesting.
A hint of a wreath table top design for pre-Halloween decorating.
A twig and stick design with sweet dumpling pumpkins and rosary vine (Ceropegia woodii). I also made a cherry twig and skeleton leaf Stick Insect
An all plant zero waste, levitating, twig (with just a splatter of autumn leaves, a breath of spiderweb and float of roots) Halloween decoration with an eerie bat skeleton made...
Weave a sphere from grass to catch a precious and exquisite and perfect glistening early autumn dew drop
A creative way to keep foliage hydrated for a cool, water filled summer design.
