Twig Spring Sign

I found this idea on a blog link party and loved everything about it.

As you can see, I had a bit of a problem keeping the twigs curved for the S, so I ended up enforcing the bottom twig together with curved wire, then wrapping with jute.

To bend your twigs, first choose new green growth, very gently bend them and submerse them, coiled, in the bottom of a glass of water or a jar for about a day.  Take them out and then wrap them around a paper towel or toilet paper roll and tape them into place. Let them dry for at least two days.

Assemble the twigs using jute or twine, gluing the loose end with hot glue.
