Dynamic Fall centrepiece

Materials:

Instructions:
  • Take the unopened milkweed pod and place in the bottom of the vase.
  • As the pod dries out, it will crack open.
  • As the long silky hair, attached to the seeds, dries out, they expand, forcing the pod to open more and accelerating the drying of the pod contents.

  • With time, the pod will completely open and the seeds will be suspended throughout the vase on the fluffy silky hairs. (Little hands may also be happy to assist with the process!)
