Thanks Woodie! I have some info on my website about how the various plants were made:

I need to update it though. Coming up with materials and methods that will hold up well outdoors is a constant learning process, so I've changed a few things since those pics were posted. For instance, I now use floral wire instead of pipe cleaners, to make the ocotillos. This saves time and labor, lasts longer, and looks better.

BTW, most of the other plants are made from parts of plastic flowers from Michael's. These are usually available seasonally, so when they have them in stock I try to buy up as many as I can.
