Hi John Mathews
The plant/tree/tower things are made from the seed pods of a Banksia tree, which is a fairly common tree in Australia and New Zealand. I have one in my back garden and it drops hundreds of the things every year.
They are painted up and a fabric flower from the dollar shop hot glued to the top.
If you are not in the Antipodes then maybe look for other natural products to use. I got the idea for these from stuff I had seen on the web made from pine cones that had been gnawed by squirrels. No squirrels in NZ so I had to make do with what I had.
If I thought border control/customs dept would allow it I would send you a box full! Best of luck.
