Inspired by Pinterest

Like almost everyone else on the face of the earth, I am hooked on Pinterest!  I pinned this image ages ago, and just have not been able to get it out of my head.  

Then I found this one, and fell in love with painted sticks all over again.

So, I started here, with some naked sticks from my son's "stick collection".  Every household had a stick collection, right?

I got going with acrylic paint and some white puffy paint and before long, I had five sticks painted!

I love seeing them sprouting from my shady urn for now, but I am sure they will be relocated as soon as I get my flowers planted in here.

Have you painted sticks?  If so, what did you do with them?   I can see a lot of painted sticks in my future...

  1. I have painted sticks and I have shown others how to do it. But, first I helped them out by sanding down 12 long sticks (about 7 - 8 foot high). What a job! It took me a week during my space time. Then I sealed them all and painted the dried sealed sticks with gesso. I am an artist and simply cannot put out work that isn't properly prepared! The workshop was full and thoroughly enjoyed. I am not sure where the sticks are now but everyone was very happy with their sticks.
