While I haven't posted on my blog in a long time, I have certainly still been reading blogs. I saw this idea on one of my favorite decor/crafty blogs. She simply spray painted sticks and stuck them in a container. So when I was driving down my street and saw my neighbors' tree getting cut down, I ran over and stole a few branches. Ok, I asked the tree cutters first if I could take them, and after they looked at me oddly, they said yes.
I loved the way this simple, easy, and thrifty idea turned out.
