So I had a lot of paint cans and primer cans left... I got clear glue and paper rope and re-used them. The flowers are growing in paper cups that are inserted; wouldn't want them to be growing in paint leftovers. And for the shine, I used clear glue (the same type I used to stick the rope on)
The one holding the bathroom utensils was a dried fruit package that I re-used. It seems to work with anything that is round. It also only seems to look like wood if you apply a finish.

Oh, I like these, very organic feel to them.  They look nice as a collection for your plants. Nancy

The one more likely to this (covered in string) I have no picture of, but I have pictures of the other stuff kinda similar to this:

Great texture! I agree with SiFi Mom, they have an organic feel to them.
