Looks are Deceiving!
At first glance you think the possibilities are limited, but in the hands of a floral designer, craft designer, or gifted tree designer the ideas begin to explode.
A unique quality of the product is its ability to stretch, roll, and fold.
Make a Palm Tree!
If you want some movement in your tree trunk simply heat the PVC and bend slightly one way and then another as a tree would normally grow. Once this is completed, start at the top and glue your first piece of palm net in place then work your way down the trunk until you reach the bottom.
Some designers like to intermix palm fiber and palm net which is stiffer than palm fiber. This gives softness, and the contrast of warm to dark brown creates a beautiful effect.
Make a Wall Sconce!
Secure with raffia, bark wire, or simply hot glue, add natural mosses and lichen to give a true lodge look.
For the tropical look you might try peacock feathers, skeletalized leaves, pods and a permanent tropical flower.
Secure with raffia, hot glue and finish with a small sea shell in the center of the raffia bow.
Make a Unique Picture Frame!
You’ll have a fast, unique picture frame that will work well with tropical or lodge decor by just adding shells, or moss and lichen.
