Fall is here, and with it the cooler weather has inspired a lot of long walks in our house. The ground around out house these days is scattered with fallen leaves and twigs and I’m always impressed by the simple beauty of them. This projects takes the humble stick and turns it into something beautiful for your home. What could be better?
Things to do:
1. Trim all of your sticks and twigs to approximately the same length. The length depends on the width of your wreath and final look you want, but don’t be too fussy about keeping them all the same, you want some variation.
2. Lay your wreath form on a flat, covered work surface and, using the glue, attach a stick at the 12, 3, 6, and 9 points on the circle, centering each. These will be your guide points and will help keep your remaining sticks even and straight.
3. Place sticks at equal points between the four already attached, breaking up the wreath further to create eight, approximately even sections.
4. Working section by section, fill in the wreath, keeping the sticks relatively even with each other as you go.
5. Clean up any glue threads and check that all of your sticks have adhered well before hanging.
