Decking the Halls with Nature

Here are some more sticks:)
I little different then the last 
I posted about.
They aren't difficult,
just a little messy.

You will need 5 sticks
roughly the same size,
some craft wire (or strip those little twist ties,)
and some needle-nosed pliers.
(Never mind my tea)
I chose mossy sticks for this star.
You could spray them white or silver etc.
to suit your decor.
Again, I prefer natural.
Lay them out in a star shape
before wiring anything.
You might need to put one over or under
another because they aren't perfectly straight.
Then wire the points together (using the needle-nose pliers) 
wrapping any of the wire tails to the back.
Once you have all five points wired,
wire at least a couple of the places
'in the star' where the sticks cross.
I made two different sized.
The taller one is about 16 inches tall.
The smaller one is about 8 inches tall.
I might have to do a really big one.
We'll see how ambitious I am.

Until next time,
Nimble Fingers and Even Stitches
