A simple PVC pipe as design object! Water it or Vase it!
It could be a very good DIY for a vase. All of us might be having pipes or few long and short pieces. Pigmento has made this beautiful vase from such simple materials -PVC pipe and a clamp. Lo and behold your vase is ready!

Dry leaves between the pages started with my botany student sister years ago. This is one project which is ever going. I did it too and now my daughters have a few thick notebooks full of dry leaves and flowers.
This is what my elder daughter did for her school project – a wall hanging.
The creepers are of dried tomato plants. Orchids and bougainvillea flowers are kept as it is. The body of butterfly is made of rose leaves. The feathery wild growth (?) (on the right side) and wings of butterfly are coloured.
The wings of butterfly with their antennas are absolutely untouched-see the nature’s perfect cuts!
I can’t recognize these leaves (I mean the wings of butterfly ones). Anybody know? May be Robyn of garden rooms will be able to tell us.

Guess which flower this is?
In all pristine glory he is ready to dance for her, too woo her. He is all decked up as there is competition. Not a feather without preening as she is going to select.Nature has her strange reasons to make males rather beautiful in animal kingdom. Female species are not that attractive but mostly in position to choose.Once again I have chosen him (earlier as simplest mor), now as most fabulous peacock. He is my favourite craft-bird.See how all over the world (mainly in public places) this bird is loved in mosaic magic. Let’s start the peacock dance now….. Mor chowk, Udaipur, Rajasthan, India.

the photo is of not good quality and he is also not in his colourful glory but I like this one too. It was a private home in Paphos, Cyprus
