How To Make – A Twig Wall Flower

This week we joined in a Google+ Hangout organised by Red Ted Art to talk about stick/twig craft. There were some fantastic craft ideas (see the bottom of the page for the video and links to other craft blogs) and the following Twig Wall Flower was our offering, which I think would make a wonderful Mother’s Day present.

To make it you will need …

Some twigs (ours were wind fall of an Oak tree), a ball of modeling material ( I used ModelAir but you could use salt dough, play dough or clay) and some felt off cuts.

Twig Wall Flower Materials

1. Take a small piece of your modeling material, roll it in to a ball and squash it down into a dome shape. Take your twigs and stick them around the edge of the dome.

2. Make some small felt flowers from off cuts and glue them around the edge of the dome to cover up the area where the twigs enter the modelling material and leave to dry.

3. Carefully attach some natural twine to the back and hang on the wall.
