Well, I am a woman who likes to use and reuse...and this is a perfect example of the way I do things. First of all, I acquired the sticks when a windstorm whipped through Oklahoma (which happens weekly, I swear!). I sprayed the beautiful sticks in hot pink and then plopped them in the most amazing dry vase (that my mom made for me from a tin ceiling tile, that needed to be replaced). So, for many months this vase of stick beauties sat on a chest of drawers in my bedroom...then I decided they needed to make their debut in the main living area at Christmas (see below).
Vamping up the dining room with a splash of pink.
I loved them so much in the dining room, that I decided they were Valentine's worthy! I just removed the green sparkly deer and felt present...slowly, these sticks are leading the life of a cat. 2 lives down, 7 to go...
On to the third life, as a fantastic little Easter Tree. I was planning on making little eggs to dangle from the branches, but I found this set of eggs (packaged so nicely in the paper green grass, which also brought new, spring life to the vase) at Ross for $4...at that point I eliminated the need for me to do any egg crafting...yay, Ross!!!
So cute, huh. Oh, and the little pedestal table is a treasure that I picked up the Goodwill, and gave it a spray of the same hot pink.
