Twig and wire fruit bowl: Why not having materials is never an excuse

If you can’t find suitable materials lying around the house, try the garage, and if that fails, let nature provide some wonderful materials free of charge.

This project is testament to that, all the wood was scavenged while on a walk in a nearby wood. The other two main materials, wire and an old biscuit tin, I found lying around the garage.

Please note: You will probably need to sand the ‘biscuit tin’ base to remove the printed surface. I’d also suggest spending some time, after steps 8 and 9, shaping the bowl by bending the twigs and wire.
