Sticks and Frames

I was perusing through some other blogs for projects and came across the blog Cleverly Inspired.  I needed some ideas for around the house and really liked the idea of using sticks to make art.  I had an old picture frame that I wasn't using and found a can of black spray paint from around the house.  My yard has a lot of sticks in it, so I was not left wanting for materials. I followed the guide on the blog, and found it really simple.

First, I gathered some sticks from my yard and spray painted them black.  

 I them used some clippers to shorten a few of the sticks and a staple gun to secure them to the frame.

I left them to dry while I spray painted the frame.  I used black for this as well.

I love the look of the black sticks and frame against my Green Tea color wall.  Fabulous!!

  2. Jenn, cool project and the black does look awesome against your wall color! Nel

  3. Totally linking to to this later today. I love that this wall art looks awesome on its own, but could also be decorated seasonally!
