You may be happy to hear that today is the last of the stick projects. At least for right now. I'm sure that I'll be doing more of them in the future.
This one is my favorite but it's actually not done yet.
I broke all my sticks into 6" lengths. I've made two of these so far and the first one I cut a wreath form out of a cereal box and wrapped it with sisal twine. The second one I decided that I wanted a sturdier form so I purchased a foam wreath form at the dollar store and sliced it in half so that I would get two wreaths out of it. The foam I wrapped in burlap strips because it was a lot quicker than wrapping it in twine. Then I just started hot gluing the sticks around until it was all filled up.
I'm still debating on what I want to put on this to finish it off. I think it would look ok just as it is but I've also got some fall picks that I picked up at Michaels that would look really nice on it too.
