What are you most proud of?
Finding that the teasle tops looked like brooms and were small enough for this project
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
You need to gather the beechnuts soon after they fall from the trees and look for even, open ones that have a good shape.
Leave the stalk on to help attach the bead head.
