This is my kind of DiY project, a Kids craft idea that can be done by toddlers – – and looks like a professional completed it!
Making fall sticks is fun, therapeutic and creates the most wonderful entrance hall home decor!
Fall Sticks – Autumn Sticks
So Simple! So pretty!!
A few weeks ago we painted sticks that we found in the garden. Random sticks = random colors – we just went for it! The kids loved it, it really took their imaginations!!
This time I bought sticks as I had a specific look in mind and wanted ‘thinnish’ drift wood looking branches to make an arrangement in the entrance.
I bought (already primed) white sticks – really cheap!
Then we painted a base coat with acrylic paints – fall colors.
Then once that layer was dry – the next day – we painted over it with gold and glitter acrylic paints.
So all in all, a little more work than just painted sticks for the fun of it – but totally worth it.
If you can not get white painted or primed sticks then (if you want them to last) you are going to want to spray on a primer first. Painting onto white also makes the Fall / Autumn color paints pop!!
We really enjoyed painting these sticks – the kids especially!
They enjoy projects that allow them to paint without lines and objectives – and painting sticks is one of those where we can just smear paint all over the place until it is covered!
Pin us for later!! – ->
