Finally, I can show the little project I’ve been working on.
Contorted Hazel shaped into a tree.
This isn’t the first time I have made one of these.
The first one I made was made from Twisted Willow and it was for a family named Trillow. Since then, I have called it a ‘Trillow Tree’.
Although, since then I have developed the process of making them. I no longer use Willow as it is too flexible for my liking. I started to use Contorted Hazel as it has stronger branches so that you can hang things from it. This makes it a fantastic Christmas decoration, or even a great decoration to have around the house to display photos of a memory such as a wedding!
I thoroughly enjoy making these and hope to make more in the future! They would make fantastic table arrangements for a wedding, great gifts for someone to remember that special memory, or even just to decorate a corner of your house with a low maintenance natural decoration.
