Rainbow Thistle Decoration

I would also like to make a set of these in an ombre pattern. Adds a bit of lovely texture!


  • Thistles – Thistles grow wild, I picked about 8 from the riverbank.
  • Secateurs & gardening gloves – Thistles are very thorny, you will want to protect your hands.
  • Wood dowel approx 3cm in diameter and at least 70cm in length
  • Walnut wood stain
  • Spray paints in lots of different colours.
  • Drill with a wood drill bit as wide as the thistle stem.
