Well firstly a big HAPPY NEW YEAR from me to all of you.
Hope you all enjoyed bringing in the new year and look forward to the year
My today's post is a bit informative and interesting and also contain a fun project. one week ago i was in my village where greenery is all around. My village home has a big lawn at its back so one day i saw many types of grass in my backyard. one of the grass is "fox tail grass". I want to tell you something about foxtail grass... This grass has many bushy head like tail of fox, and can grow up to two feet tall. It gets its name
from the bushy bristle on top of the stem. foxtails spikelets have a hardened tip like needles. these spikelets are very sticky and can join with other spikelets,clothes or everything easily. Dried Fox tail is beautifully used in dried flower
arrangements in several forms including wreaths, garlands, baskets, etc.
Now moving on to my Creativity. i collect many foxtail spikelets and make a little baskets of grass. i have made two types of baskets one is dried spikelets and the second is made of fresh spikelets. i have not used any types of glue to make these baskets because foxtail spikes are easily stickable . Some pics of grass baskets are here.... My grass basket with aluminum hearts
Another little basket with wild flowers.
Both dries and fresh grass spikelets baskets.
It is my ever new project. i never work with this kind of things but i really enjoyed it. Isn't it pretty....!!!
I love it....
