Wrapped twig bouquet

This week has been a bit of a whirlwind, it’s been half term so the children have been off school. At the beginning of the week we had a day of creative play, making slime (oh how I hate slime!) and playing with plaster of Paris with moulds of sand. I was hoping to wrap twigs to create a bouquet but it turned out the idea only appealed to me. Not to be deterred this weekend I dug out scraps of yarn, raided the kindling for the fire pit and created my own wrapped twig bouquet.

Gradually wrapping twigs with yarn is a peaceful absorbing activity. I wrapped twigs this afternoon whilst watching a rather dreadful Christmas film with my son – he loved the film whilst I loved the crafting.

Wrapped Twig Bouquet


  • twigs
  • yarn scraps of various colours and thicknesses
  • scissors

This is such an easy craft activity.

Start by wrapping the yarn around the twig, secure with a knot.

Continue wrapping the yarn tightly around the twig. Secure with another knot when ready to swap colours.

Have fun playing with a variety of yarns and colours.
