Christine de Beer - effortless floral craftsman
It is February and the month of love. I couldn't resist adding a tiny little love bug to my design
I used pine as the head and body of my love bug.
Two dried pine needles curl as the feelers.
I used hazel to balance my bug on twiggy legs.
Next the love bug gets seeded Eucalyptus eyes and a heart shaped rosary vine (ceropegia woodii) body
Made from dried cherry twigs and a skeleton leaf.
Weave grasshoppers or butterflies (or fireflies) from palm leaves
I wrote this article for Wedding Business Success (an online meeting place for the wedding industry) exploring a positive way of looking at creativity and... stealing!
Sticks and twigs create a resting spot for palm and rose butterflies
A fragile looking heart made from twigs that can hold a lot of orchids
My Halloween design... with some scary stuff hidden if you can read between the leaves!
Craft a willow heart to display 12 red roses to celebrate Valentine's Day.
