I have had some sickies this week and have had a hard time getting this last project for the week done. Ironically too, it is sooo easy! But I'm here today...finally! haha
Today I have another From this to that for you. My favorite kind of post! Where I take something that seems plain and ordinary and transform it into...something not so plain and ordinary. lol No, really. I just love creating and love taking something and using some creativity to make it into something fun...or just something...MORE! Love it!
Today I have a simple DIY for you. And all you really need is a couple of yardsticks! Yep! That's it! (Well, I'm not gonna lie...you need some adhesive or nails/staples too. lol)
It's the easiest thing ever and so fun!
Grab yourself a couple of yardsticks...you can find them almost anywhere...craft stores, tool supply stores, almost anywhere. You'll need three to make this project.
I didn't want to mess with my husband's nail gun and I knew I wanted this as a decorative piece, not to by lugging heavy things around in, so I just opted to use my hot glue gun as my adhesive.
I cut my yardsticks into 7 pieces that were 11 inches long and 4 pieces that were 5 1/2 inches long. Then I used 8 popsicle sticks as well, where I cut off the rounded ends. (These were used in the corners as supports.) I also gave the yardsticks a whitewashed look with some white and brown acrylic paint as well.
And then I just assembled them into this rectangle box shape. Sounds too simple, right? It really isn't! I started with the bottom sides first:
Then I added these oober cute little glass milk bottles I found in the Dollar Spot at Target and some Christmas cheer and they are adorable as a centerpiece on my table! There are so many possibilities!
