Twig cocoon

Glue the cherry twigs on to the frame
I made the outline shape of the cocoon frame from copper wire and then filled in the space by gluing tiny cherry twigs into the wire frame

Cherry twig frame for my cocoon design. I use copper wire (or Bonzai wire) because it will not be visible when I add flowers to the design
Glue test tubes into the cherry twig cocoon frame
I then glued small glass test tubes into the frame using hot glue. Don't worry too much about the glue strands- it helps keep the Dandelion seeds in place

About me

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.
