    I made some rope from daffodil leaves a few weeks ago. Tonight I coiled it into a basket around a piece of driftwood using the string from the top of the chicken feed bags as my thread.

        What an excellent idea. Dead daffodil leaves are quite tough too. I just might have a go next year.
        Yours is lovely. love the added fir cone.

            I was the person at the side of the road gathering dead daffodil leaves - I have some dried in my shed now, and some of last year's montbretia too.

              It's amazing what us crafters will gather to use, I get some funny looks when I grab a handful of the wooden stirring sticks in Costa Coffee or Starbucks to use in my card or atc making...

                How very clever - and useful! I never would've thought of that.

                      That is really inventive and looks brill! I can only imagine what went through the minds of passing traffic as you collected dead daff leaves

                        Don't see why not. I'm waiting for the wild iris leaves to die back next!

                          That's super - you are so inventive with your material sourcing, it really is back to nature isn't it?

                            Learn something new every day. Knew that you could make cord from nettles and a few other plants but never heard of daff leaves before. Result looks great. Did you strip the leaves down or use them whole and twist them?

                              The daffodil leaves were used whole, collected once they had died back.
