Outdoor Yard Work Led to a Very Cool Craft, You Might Be Surprised....

I am usually the one to venture out to ride the tractor to cut the grass and also weed whack so while my family thinks I'm out doing just that I am also crafting. I did a trial run first and this is what I found. I introduced Mexican Petunia's with my mirror /mantle display but there is more to that pretty easy growing plant than meets the eye. You can actually weave the long lanky stems into a wreath such as the grape vine. . I made one and let it dry and now its ready to decorate. I made a couple more the other day come on over to Sweet Tea N' Salty Air and take a tour of the yards and see what I have been up to http://mrsblackstone.blogspot.com
After plucking the long stems I just structured a circle then began weaving the stems as I plucked them
Once it is dry the leaves fall off and it's ready to decorate! Just in time for fall
Come see what I do with the Aloe Vera plant
