This is a simple and fun activity using natural things and also makes a great gift.
- First, choose a plant pot and stretch two elastic bands around it - one near the top and one near the bottom.
- When out on a walk, pick up a handful of straight sticks. Snap them into a length that’s just longer than the height of the plant pot.
- Then slip the sticks one at a time, inside the two elastic bands so that they sit tight against the pot. Do this until your plant pot is covered.
- Then wrap twine around the elastic bands to give your twig pot an all-natural look.
