Project: Willow nest

I really love the shape of trees, especially when it is used in stencils and in jewelry so I decided to make…something.  It’s actually not related to any of the two categories mentioned above but I did it anyway.

Last winter, I was walking through my parents’ garden and I saw the branches of a “curly” willow. They looked perfect as they were, just sitting in a vase. But then I thought something was missing so I made a few white origami flowers to attach to the branches.

After a few days I bought an electric blue paint and I thought the contrast between it and the flowers would look awesome so I decided to color the wood (It took forever because I had to use a brush to avoid the already-glued flowers).

Then I found this amazing white bird in a hobby store and I decided to adopt it and place her in the willow nest. Now, this arrangement sits on my living room table.
