I’ve been thinking lately… I have all of these ideas for sticks. Seriously, I can’t get sticks out of my head.
Does that sound weird?
Maybe just a little….
Because of my new obsession, I’ve decided to create a little mini series: “Stick & Twigs- Fabulous & Free”!
Here goes the second idea with sticks & twigs as the main source of inspiration. (If you missed my first post, the stick star sure inspired me to create FREE things from nature.)
If a shape can be created, what about words? Brilliant!
Better yet, let’s create a saying!
Since fall makes me happy, it was pretty easy to decide on the words: Happy Fall.
So simple! But such a huge impact to the once plain jane pallet.
Here’s what you do:
1. Collect sticks.
2. On a piece of cardboard, draw the letters in the size and shape you want.
3. Begin breaking the sticks into pieces to form the letter.
4. Hot glue the pieces together.
5. Continue with the rest of the letters.
6. Add letters/ saying to blank surface, in my case a pallet.
7. Just hot glue the letters and enjoy!
These stick projects are sure making me love life. Especially when they’re free!
I hope your not sick of our front porch yet… I have at least one more project to show you. And yes, it involves sticks. 😉

Like your project! Good idea! good for Christmas too! 🙂
Thank you! I thought it was clever… and so versatile. 😉
Hi Shayna, I am fairly new to Pinterest and on the DIY boards I see a picture of a flag using sticks but can’t find the link for it. Since you have a “thing” for sticks (so do I–we have several willow trees in our yard that loose branches during the winter, especially in the high winds like we are having today) I thought you might know where I could find it. I just need to know how to put it together…I’ll keep looking on your site in case I’ve missed it there. Thanks for any help you can provide!
Hi Frances! Thank you so much for your comment. I’m sorry that you couldn’t find the link to my sick and twig banner.
Here’s the link: https://www.thewoodgraincottage.com/2012/10/18/stick-twig-welcome-banner/
I love using free things… and our trees provide the perfect opportunity to get crafty! Plus, the results are fabulous- I still have this lovely banner hanging up above our door! 🙂
I hope this helps!
