got sticks?

I bought this sweet little bundle of sticks at Rod Works in Utah for $2.50:

As I was playing around with where to put them, my husband saw it and said, "more sticks?"
I said, "what do you mean, more sticks?"
He raised his eyebrows.

Then, I looked around and had to laugh:

sticks in nests
topiaries made out of sticks

balls made out of sticks in glass jars:

more stick balls in stick baskets

sticks with starfish

wreaths made out of sticks


sticks in the bathroom

sticks in pots

Yea, I got sticks.
I like sticks.


What about you...

  3. I love sticks too! Tried to make some Christmas stars out of them last year but the glue I used didn't work well. Also found some cut bamboo by the side of the road that I thought I could use for drapery rods. Alas, they were too big...
    Love sticks and stones!

  4. Yep. I love sticks. They are so natural and organic, plus you can use the real thing and never have to water them or anything.

  5. Good post! My husband would roll his eyes and want to know why I didn't go in the backyard for some sticks. ;)

  9. As I was reading your post I remembered how much I used to LOVE sticks. When I was little I would collect sticks, use a vegetable peeler to get all of the bark off, then leave some plain and paint some. I used to love, love, love my naked painted sticks. Thank you for helping me to remember my love of sticks!! I love your sticks, too! :)

  11. LOL... You are so funny. My hubby always says... "Another Star"???? LOL. I love the look of a vintage star. It just adds something. Sticks are my weakness too. Because you can do so much with them.
    I bought a stick type wreath at Rod Works about 6 months ago, and hung it on my pantry door, and my hubby said... "Uh... why do we have a wreath in our kitchen??? Aren't those for FRONT doors?" LOL. They just don't get it... right? :)

  12. The sticks together with the starfish and shell..., nice touch. It could even be driftwood too.

  13. Gotta love sticks! They can be used for so many great things- who knew we would spend so much money on something that's free!?

  14. I use sticks alot in decorating my home as well as my giftshop. I hang them from the ceiling and suspend ornaments and wrap floral around the twigs so they look more realistic.

    My blog shows a few shots of my booth at Calico Hen House.

    I love the sticks you show coming out of the white box. They are all twisted and look very real.

  15. I've got 'em, but they're all in a pile in the backyard. I've really been racking my brain for something cool to do with them indoors, but so far I haven't come up with anything exciting enough to actually lead me to bring any in.

  17. Hahah, I DO have sticks but can't figure out what to do with them. Somedays I wish I hadn't bought them...then I think...they were $1 at the Dollar Store. My hubby thinks I'm crazy because we have been cutting down dead branches and getting rid of all sorts of piles of sticks at our house. And I BOUGHT some. :)

    I pick them off the ground after a storm and put them in pots, and wreaths and on shelves with displays!
    So natural and so free!

  28. I am so glad that I found your blog the other day! You have some really cute ideas that you've transformed into great decorating accents! You should've posted your apothecary jar with the stick balls and the eggs for the cloche part! I love ALL of your stick stuff. Thanks for joining as a follower, Melissa. :-) Sue

  32. My husband told me he had a dream he was being attacked my shoes. While I was biting my tongue to keep from telling him how weird he was I noticed my shoes. Several pairs under my dresser, a few pair at the foot of the bed, more by the vanity and three pairs in the bathroom. Whoops!
