Wildlife Weave

As part of The Wildlife Trusts #30DaysWild challenge I’ve decided to get creative.  I’ve made a Wildlife Weave.

30 Days Wild counter 23

I collected up a few different wild flowers and grasses. Four fern leaves are crucial, everything else is changeable to what is available.

Very carefully you can plait the fern leaves into a long stick. I then used string to tie four corners together.  I tried just using grass but it didn’t hold.

Then using long grasses you can create a grid to weave in. The folds on the fern will hold the grass in place. Once you have a loose grid you can weave in some flowers.

Here is my finished result:

Hope you like it?  I left it hanging on a stone wall for all to see!  Have you been getting creative in the wild?
