Take some twine and glue it like a spiral. You can use a cork coaster or a thick cardboard or felt base to stick the twine.
DIY Crepe paper roses... I remember my school days, when my mom taught me to make these flowers for a craft competition and I had won it!! Even my chemistry mam had asked me to make a bunch of yellow and red roses for her :) My mom had so much of talent imbedded in her those days when there were not much media to share or learn from. Hats off Mom!!

DIY Grass Pots:
This is a good idea to cover up your old pots. Stick a double sided tape and stick natural grass or artificial grass made from green craft paper to cover up your pot. Use it as a center piece for your table or to accessorize your living room.
This basket reminded us of the Chettinad style Kottans (Baskets) made from bamboo leaves. They were really colorful and multi-purpose usage. My granmom has a hundreds of those - right from storing onions, fruits, keys to tablets by the bedside.
We would love to get a chance to learn how to make them and post the video here, next time we go to our native. For now, let's practice with brown paper bags lying in our house. Most apparel shops give paper bags to avoid the use of plastic... Good for the world!! :)
