The other day the sun was shining and the birds were chirping and the grass was growing….
….and I wanted to bring a little of spring inside.
The dining room table still had little bit of winter and I wanted to redo the table…..
….and I didn’t want to spend any money.
I gave it all to Uncle Sam on April 15.
But the dining room table was not to be denied.
And I live in the country.
In the country we have cows and sheep and hay trucks and chicken barns and horse barns and white fences….
I have extra if you need some.
And when you are low on funds and high on sticks.
You end up with as spring table decorated for absolutely nothing.
I need to start saving for next April 15, 2015.
Wood Stick Vase
clear glass vase
Are you ready for the tutorial?
Pay close attention because if you blink you might miss it.
Step 1: Glue sticks to vase
Step 2: Glue more sticks to the vase
Vary the heights to make them look like art instead of sticks from the yard.
Add another layer where needed so you can’t see the vase.
Then fill with flowers from the yard.
And here’s the official wood stick vase maker.
Her name is Hannah and she will be interning for the summer here at thistlewood.
She is funny and smart and creative…..
….and likes an amazing pair of earrings as much as I do.
