A crazy woman's idea of fun design

Okay folks...today's post just might make you think I am officially bonkers, crazy, out of my mind. However, I think this project was so easy, cost nothing, and is exactly what my house needed to feel a little bit cozier. Today I am working with sticks...yep, I said it. Free, pick em' out of your yard kind of sticks! I also used yarn I already had and some leftover gold spray paint. All together it created these...

I just flecked small sections with the gold and left part of them natural as well.

      & here are some ways I played around with decorating with them.





And can we also take a minute to admire the new sweater that is hanging in these pictures? The hubs got it for me yesterday. I am IN LOVE with it! Paired with my fur slippers & winter-y looking sticks...it makes me in the mood for some hot chocolate & some movie watching.

I also thought it would be fun to use these sticks in an unpredictable way in my bedroom. I used them as artwork on a very naked wall. I simply hot glued them...Yep another "she's crazy" moment, but that's why ya like me? Right? haha. So far they have stayed up and when I peeled one off the wall I was shocked when it did nothing to the wall or the paint. I am not encouraging others to be as silly  brave as my hot glue on the wall trick, but I just wanted you to know how I got them to stay up there.




I thought it was so fun & FREE! I heart free! Am I officially considered design crazy yet? Probably. And just because I couldn't end today's post without a whacky pun..... I think this project was so simple and perfect because I didn't "stick" to typical design here. For me that's HUGE! haha. Well I hope you all have a fantastic day. Thanks for popping in & I will see you crazy kids tomorrow!
