I Am the Vine, You Are the Branches
Art Workshop – Twig lattices
Create a vine-like support structure at your church for any kind of climbing plant – cucumbers, morning glories, even grape vines. Plant climbers at the base.
Add stepping stones with the VERSE painted on them.
Students can create a second stepping verse stone to go home with them.
This is a lesson that will keep on giving.
Materials – long branches from pruned shrubs, 4 inch lengths of thin floral wire (or twist ties or pipe cleaners).
How to do it.
You can use trimmed branches or go to the home-outdoor-decor store and buy twig lattice material.
Lay out on the ground your branches in a criss cross pattern. Where branches cross, secure together by wrapping around length of wire.
Stake it to the ground.
In addition to planting climbers at its base, you can also add suet-seed balls for birds and colorful strips of cloth (like a prayer tree).
