I really wanted to create cute pieces in Colt’s room during his big boy bedroom makeover (that you can check out HERE) BUT I didn’t want to spend a lot of money. In fact, if I could spend ZERO money that would be ideal. So I started trying to thing of ways to decorate with things that we already have laying around and then I decided to create a letter C made out of sticks! The reason I thought this would be so cute is because his room “theme” as adventure and so I wanted to make sure that everything I did was something “woodsy” and so sticks seemed like the perfect fit!
So a few months ago our neighbor was kind enough to prune back our plum tree. Well, mostly he heard that we were going to get rid of it because it was awkardly big and he didn’t want us to get rid of it. So, he was definently pruning it so we wouldn’t get rid of it (he gets free plums from it). Anyways, we have been left behind with a whole bunch of tree branches and sticks. So I decided to use those little things to create a cute wall art where you can check out HERE as well as this letter C.
So I first began by taking a piece of scrap wood that I had in our shed.
I roughly drew the type of “C” that I wanted. I knew it didn’t have to be perfect, because sticks are going over it anyways.
I then used my favorite tool (the skill saw/jigsaw) to cut out my C.
I then painted it brown (the color that I painted the bottom mountains)
I then started taking off twigs and branches from the pile of sticks that I had in my backyard
After that I put hot glued the sticks to cover up the C
And that is it!
I took on of those sticky things and used it to hold up the C on his wall
