Quirky Palm Leaf Creatures December 09, 2014 11:37

Palm leaves like all things organic have always been a great craft inspiration. They are not quite leaves nor wood,  a very tough 'material' though very light, and a pleasure to work with. An added bonus, they never have any bugs!
The endless use of the palm leaves needing some basic tools, lots of imagination and above all a sense of humour.
Herewith are some entirely organic creations.
The penguins are made with palm,'monkey balls'  and shells.
