A few months ago, my friend at Mama’s Happy Hive did a craft with crumpled tissue paper to represent the changing seasons, and it inspired me to make this craft.
The golden wattle (Acacia pycnantha) is the national flora of Australia. It grows to about 26 feet and has flattened leaf stalks (phyllodes) instead of true leaves. The plant produces fragrant, golden flowers appear in late winter and spring, followed by long seed pods. It can be found from southern New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory, through Victoria and into southeastern South Australia.

- Wattle Branch Printable
- Yellow Tissue Paper
- Craft Glue
Tear off small pieces of tissue paper and crumple into little balls.
Dip these balls into the glue and stick on your stick.
Keep doing this until your stick is full of yellow blooms!
How beautiful is this? What a fun (and easy!) activity!
