Craft & lantern willow withy sticks for lantern making.

Buff Willow is great for 3D modelling, sculpting and forming the skeleton of your willow lantern.

These willow Sticks are between 5ft and 6ft in height and come in a tied bundle. 10kg equates to approximately 400 - 500 sticks.

These are a naturally product so the specification of willow sticks in a stack will vary they start fairly thick (about 1cm) and then taper to a thinner end.

Withies can be bent into shapes and secured with masking tape, gaffer tape or wire then covered in wet strength tissue paper to make amazing structures.

Naturally, willow sticks have good flexibility but for more complex structures try soaking them in water overnight - a bath is always a good option!

All our willow is grown in the UK

Willow withy sticks are naturally very flexible but you can make them more so for more advanced structures.

Soak the willows sticks in water for 24 hours and they will be super malleable. You can put in the bath overnight or use a large plastic bag.

Once you have bent into the shape you want simply secure with masking tape or wire. Then you are ready to cover with wet strength tissue paper.

Willow Stick Length - between 5 and 6 foot

This is a natural product so each bundle and stick will vary

brilliant withies

I requested, 'if at all possible could I have skinny withies as these were for small children to have a go with', they are brilliantly slender, so...plan to try our hand at willow lanterns this weekend:) had to wait to construct as had to source tissue elsewhere as were out of stock here at Carnival Papers. The response to order and delivery were brilliant and timely.

Not quite as expected

The withies I received are thicker than shown in the picture, I think they have had their thin ends chopped off which is a shame as it was the thin ends I needed. So I have had to source willow from elsewhere, and I will have to use these for something else in the future. The delivery was really fast though.
