This gorgeous echidna was made by a 9 year old boy named Charlie. It’s body is a beautiful big dried banksia flower. I met Charlie and lots of other lovely kids and families at my local Australian Plants Society sale in Adelaide over the weekend. We had loads of native seedpods to choose from, and it was fabulous to see so many children (and some adults!) completely engaged with creating their own unique seedpod critters using their imaginations and a trusty low-melt glue gun! Head outside, collect some bits and pieces and have a go yourself!
Here are some other creations:
