What Boredom Can Do

It was a few days ago, when I was trying to be productive that I tried cleaning out the garden. I found one of our plants shedding its leaves and all that remained from the once healthy tree were twigs. I ended up picking them and was inspired to do something out of what everyone might think of as nothing. 😉

Here are the things that I used for this project:

TWIG Material-Paper Strips

Paper Strips

TWIG Material-Small Vase

Small Vase

TWIG Material-Tools

Art Tools

TWIG Material-Twigs


After collecting the materials needed, all that needs to be done is to assemble the pieces together. To do that,  take the paper strips (of your desired color) and form them into coils (of your desired size). It should look like this:

TWIG Metho-Roll Paper Strips

Make five (5) coils of the same size and color (these would serve as the petals of our flower) for each flower that you should make, also make a smaller coil of different color from the five coils (this would be the center of the flower) . Assemble the flower by gluing the pieces together as such:

TWIG Metho-Assemble

Coil enough pieces of green paper and pinch one end to make it look like a teardrop, this will serve as the leaves (if you wish to put leaves on the product).  Next thing to do is assemble the pieces together; the flower and leaves should look like these:

TWIG Metho-Assembled Flower

TWIG Metho-Assembled Leaves

Then, assemble the flowers with the twigs in no particular order, just let your creativity work it and you should have something like this:

TWIG Metho-Assembled Twig

Finally, put the twigs into the vase and add in other details that you wish to add and viola, you’ve made something rather cute from mere twigs. 😉

Here is my finished product:

TWIG Product-Twig Leaves

Tadaaaa :>
