What do I do with an abundance of raffia? I use it to make hair for the latest member in my Stumpy Family.
Here is how I made Miss Mosaic from an old mailbox post, raffia, googly eyes, a lid from a tin, glue, a drill, yarn, and a mosaic pot.
Glue was spread over the tin lid, and the raffia was pressed into it. Then it got turned upside down on the old post and screwed in.
The pot was tried out for size and so I could mark where to glue the eyes and mouth. A quick and easy whimsical project.
I decided to put her in the honeysuckle garden where I have the tea thyme area. Everyone needs a cup of tea after being in the garden. The china in the mosaics was from old broken tea cups and saucers.
I’ve got a few more logs that can be transformed into more tea thyme companions for Miss Mosaic.
Lots of garden whimsy.
