We are having a craft fair in our school next week and I decided to try and sell something. I made these Christmas ornaments to sell at the fair. Hope someone will buy them!
The wooden star is really easy to make, I drilled holes at the ends of the sticks and combined them with jute string. I think they are pretty as is, but they could also be decorated with lights, ribbons or beads.
I’m also making some concrete candleholders to sell. They are drying as I type…
This makeover is very simple. I had Ikea Nyttja photo frames which cost 2,95 euros for the pack of two. My goal was to make the frames look better and more unique. I used the same fire starter sticks I used for this round wood stick mirror project. I cut them the right size and painted them black with basic acrylic paint. After they dried I used fine grit sandpaper to distress the edges just a bit and then glued them to the frame. This is the after:
I think it looks so much better! You could also glue the wood pieces first and then spray paint the frames one color. Using a narrow wood trim instead of these wooden sticks would also look so good!
I’ve wanted to make a round mirror or a sunburst mirror for a while now. I had a round mirror that I wanted to use so I bought a huge bag of wood fire starter sticks. The 5 kg bag was more than I need but for 6 euros it wasn’t an expensive purchase. I can always think more wood stick projects…
I followed the instructions: cut the sticks smaller, clued them to the base and cut the round shape. The mirror ended up being about 50cm diameter, just the right size to add above our bed. I stained it black and it turned out perfectly! Here it is finished:
