Winter in Australia is brightened by our amazing range of flowering wattles. Kids (and adults!) just love making wattle crowns and bracelets, and it’s so easy to do. Just staple a strip of cardboard to make a crown or bracelet, and attach the wattle with sticky tape or staples. A beautiful winter nature craft!
The Golden Wattle, Acacia pycnantha, became the Australian floral emblem in 1988, and wattle appears on the Australian Coat of Arms.
