Still sticking around

Can you believe I still have more stick projects? My trees provided me with plenty of craft material and I'm ever so grateful. I bet if I went back out there I would find even more laying on the ground.

Todays project is a framed piece.


The frame was purchased at a thrift store. I took out the glass and covered the cardboard backing that was in the frame with scrapbook paper. I broke sticks into various lengths and used a thicker one for the trunk. I painted a wood star yellow and glued it all down to the scrapbook paper. The bottom is a piece of batting that I tucked into the frame and glued down to look like snow. I printed out the saying and attached it to the side and then glued on some little snowflake beads

Another very cheap project that used up a lot of items I had in my craft stash.
