Christine de Beer - effortless floral craftsman
That's pretty much the instructions for this design: Go for a walk, pick up sticks, lay them straight.
The stick insect took a bit more time to make, though!
A closer look at my Twig Stick Insect
I wired the delicate twigs to look like they randomly fell into this upright, standing structure (just like the game Pick-Up Sticks) and then secured the sweet dumpling pumpkins into position.
The rosary vine (Ceropegia woodii) is in a small test tube to make sure it will last as long as the other design elements. All I needed to do to finish my design was to add a few grasses and winged maple seed pods.
This was the first design I did in my "I found it this way" floral art demonstration
Barely there skeleton blossoms with Eucalyptus eyes for my Halloween design... Oh! and a Willow Paddle, which probably should have been the main Tutorial... but... well...
Hoard a few acorns in the fork of a twig to show off a single oncidium orchid.
