More Lip Balm Pots

I like these little pots the best--they're made from eucalyptus seed pods that I cut not entirely in half--cut the lids from bamboo forks--drilled a few holes for the hemp sting and the closing bead--rubbed them over with sour grass blossoms for the yellow color.  These did take awhile to make--the seed pods are tough!

Oh my goodness! These are so beautiful. I realize you construct/craft/design just about everything around your home. I do as well, and yet I am consistently astonished at what you create. These are ingenious and exquisite.

Hi Michaela--I want to make some more--The eucalyptus trees with these particular pods are on the city streets of Morro Bay.
