A unique, homeade gift for teacher, parent, grandparent for any occasion. It's fun to make but the adventure in collecting the branches is probably the best part.


Time: 15 minutes
Age: 5-10's, Over 10's,
Level: Easy



Materials
Cold glue gun (this is our preference but hot glue gun can be used)
Glue sticks
Pruners (adult supervision required)
Glass vase or jar (repurpose any kind of glass jar of any shape or size)
Twigs or branches (small in diameter)
Ribbon



Collect branches to use for your project and this comes easy for most children and if you are like us you have a collection of these already on your front porch along with a rock collection.
Plug in your glue gun so it can warm up while you get the branches ready.
Choose your glass vase or jar that you will be using for your masterpiece.
Hold up a branch alongside your vase to figure out what size to cut it, we made ours slightly taller than the vase so you don't see the vase when you are done. (Adult supervision required to use pruners)



Cut your first piece and use this piece as a guide to cut more twigs, it depends on how big your jar or vase is as to how many you need to have.



Start with a vertical line of glue on the vase and place your first twig on the glass, and continue to do this until the vase is completely covered in twigs, try and keep the branches snug as possible to each other to avoid gaps.



Trim any twigs as needed.
Wrap a string of ribbon of choice around the midsection of the finished vase to add some colour and finish off the project.

The joy of this project is the imperfection of the wood used which makes every twig vase unique and beautiful and a special gift for someone

Special note: Fresh flowers can be added to the vase or try making a yarn flower.
