Dried Sticks Wreath


I know its early for fall, but this will make a great fall wreath.

Few weeks back, our tree in our yard got a little trim and there were a lot of dried branches which I collected that day in hopes of doing something with it. It has been in our garage for quiet sometime and finally I came up with this.


I have seen similar products in stores and they cost a good amount of money. Mine was totally free and that's why I love mine even more..:)

You'll  need:
----------------
A flat cardboard cut in wreath form.
Dried sticks
Glue Gun
Patience...:)

Steps:
-------
Glue sticks around the wreath till its full and all the gaps are hidden.



First I had one layer of sticks covering the whole area, but I could still see cardboard underneath. So had to stick another layer where ever I saw some gaps.




Linking this to these awesome parties here, herehere and here.

  9. I love the idea, we have lots and lots of trees, so shouldn't be a problem finding the sticks... fall is just around the corner, so this is a perfect project!
    I found you through the "Homemade By You Link Party" on "Made to be a Momma" where I am also partying, would love it if you'd stop by too.
