Pleaching or plashing was common in gardens from the late Middle Ages until the 18th century. This technique is a kind of weaving of the branches of deciduous trees or shrubs to form a living fence.

Sir Walter Scott brought the technique back to popularity in England when he described such a fence in The Fortunes of Nigel.

Grapevine felt rose wreath...I wonder if I can somehow attach the flowers and leaves to a stick or two to secure in the wreath, but then can be easily removed and replaced with other things, based on the season?
OOBLECK. Mix 2 cups of cornstarch and 1 cup water in a bowl. To color oobleck, add a few drops of food coloring to the water before adding to the cornstarch. Takes some effort to mix the water and cornstarch. Oobleck defies Newton’s third law of motion–for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. If you quickly smack oobleck with your hand it immediately turns into a solid, instead of splashing or moving. If you slowly move oobleck it reacts like a liquid.
