Helicopter Seed Craft – Wall Decoration

The simple yet beautiful  helicopter seed, also known as sycamore seed.

A great nature toy for generations of children, wonderfully tactile to touch, beautiful to look at and rather lovely to craft with.

 Helicopter Seed Craft

 Apply a thin coat of metallic pearl paint to highlight the wing texture of each helicopter seed, leaving the richer seed head untouched.

The seeds can then be carefully glued to a pale cotton thread and attached to a stick to hang on the wall.

    They look lovely, and so easy, we rarely get many of these as my boy like to actually make them be helicopters,so I end up spending more time chasing after them!!

    Not sure I could persuade mine to craft with these as they have too much fun launching them into the air

    We used to collect loads of these when I was younger. We just loved watching them float down when you threw them up.
    That’s a great craft and brings autumn inside 🙂

  11. What a beautiful idea, I love it.

  12. What a lovely craft idea! We went on the hunt for these just the other day. We didn’t find any, though, so we must go looking again.

  13. We have so many of these trees in my neighborhood, it looks like it’s snowing for several days during the spring each year!

  14. How very pretty, I love creative things using natural materials like this 🙂
