My first project was a wee one, but cute nevertheless.

1. All I did was take this purple flower from my friend Ronnie’s garden and turn it upside down.  You could use any flower you like, in your favourite colour, so long as it will sit nicely and balance, and has a stem to attach ‘arms’ and ‘head’ to.

2. I took a fine piece of stick and positioned it across the stem of the flower.

3. I then tied it to the stem using pink baker’s twine. (Oh, I love baker’s twine.) I trimmed the ends of the twine too.

4. Then I added a baby gumnut with a little bit of beeswax inside the gumnut to hold it and stick it in place.

Sweet, isn’t she?  You could make 12 Dancing Queens (or Princesses) in all different colours, shapes and sizes.  Now wouldn’t that be something!

    i’m from Italy and we don’t have gumnuts here. what can I use to make the ballerina’s head? would a baby acorn be alright?

    Hi Amber,
    could you please let me know what we could use instead of gumnuts to make the ballerina’s head. We live in Italy and we don’t have gumnuts unfortunately. Congratulations for your amazing blog!

    Why not try a small plain wooden bead? That would work! A little compromise on nature, but we do what we must. Thanks for your lovely comment!
