January 2007 Monthly Meeting Project
Mounting a Bird's Nest Fern
Here is the equipment you will need:
Use a black magic marker to mark the location for the screws, as shown in the picture on the right.
Since there are two pieces of wood, use a piece of scrap and some screws to hold the two pieces together.
Use a drill or a screwdriver to screw in the screws.
|Larry shows the proper orientation for the fern.
|Make a bed of sphagnum moss.
|Place the fern on the moss and add more moss on top.
Run the fishing line around the screws and
over the moss to hold the fern in place.
|Insert the mounting screw.
THE FINISHED PRODUCT.
