I found a neat little project to try on More Design Please. It's a top notch design blog with some fun DIY ideas. Here's what I made using many varying size twigs, an old cd, brown cardboard, a glue gun, and some fishing line.
The concept of the project is very easy. Cover the cd with something brown, and glue a bunch of sticks to it. It was easy but suprisingly time consuming, taking a couple of hours to complete. But maybe that's just me, calculating the stick's sizes and arrangement too much.
When the wreath was finished, I loved the result. Here, I used fishing line to hang it in front of a mirror. But, I think it would look even better as a grouping of three. Hoping I'll eventually have time to make a set.
