Shauna, from Satori Living, always gets my butt in gear. What do you possibly mean, you ask?
She creates these amazing challenges, invites her fellow bloggers and puts me to work.
I love it.
For the next three weeks, we are put to the challenge of creating a project with one item and a different item each week.
This week it’s twigs. Make a project with twigs. Sure, sounds easy enough.
I almost called it quits but I did it!
So I gathered some twigs and I knew I wanted to make a heart.
I just wanted a large heart made of twigs to put on the wall of my daughter’s room in our not-so-rustic cabin.
Seemed simple enough. It was actually quite hard!
First I found the twigs that already had a curve in them.
Using floral wire, I twisted the two ends of the heart together.
The bottom of the heart was harder.
I needed to add an extra little twig to the bottom twisting the floral wire all around it.
I reinforce the sides overlapping twigs and twisting floral wire.
Then snipped off the ends that stuck out.
This is the part that I couldn’t figure out and nearly called it quits.
I could not get the top to curve in properly no matter how many times I tried. I nearly emailed Shauna.
Um Shauna? Yeah, this twig challenge sucks. Sorry, I can’t do it.
But then I figured out…
I tied wire from the top to the bottom. Voila!
I’m going to use the three different projects for the next three weeks to decorate my daughter’s room in the not-so-rustic cabin in the woods.
Here are some hints for the upcoming projects…
