Twiggy...

Remember when I mentioned wrapping sticks last week? Well, it's gotten ugly. I'm some sort of stick-wrapping fiend, furiously digging through craft supplies to find more yarn to wrap around more sticks. EZ E is no longer interested...oh, wait, was he ever interested? Not so much. Anyways, someone asked for a quick tutorial, so here it is. I think the photos are pretty self-explanatory, but let me know if you have any questions. The blue part you see is just felt that I sewed onto the stick, which you can also try (easier when you have a thicker twig).

step 4: knot the end around the twig. Then trim the yarn close to the knot and tuck it into the remaining wrapped part.

VoilĂ !

This is such a great way to add colour, like flowers, to a space but with ease of not having to look after them... i love it!

Here is my attempt:
