Glue a round stacked twig platter

Instead of weaving the platter build it up, layer by layer.

Place the biggest twigs in a large circle.

Keep building up the platter, twig by twig

Keep building up the platter, twig by twig. I used white wood glue to secure the tiny twigs. Use more than needed- it dries clear and will not show.

Add smaller twigs to close the opening in the middle.

Add smaller twigs to close the opening in the middle. Place a few thicker sticks as anchor points and then fill in the rest with twigs.

Glue in a few pieces of moss

Glue moss to the twigs and drizzle some more glue over the twig platter to make sure it is secure. Let the glue dry completely before handling. Glue any sections that is not secure.

Grass and freesia buds emphasize the round shape

To emphasize the round shape I placed looped grass and freesias around the opening. The flowers flow from tight bud to slightly open to full bloom to a bit more closed to tight bud- all the way around.

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
