A super festive summer DIY
Painting sticks as a DIY project is a whimsical way to inject some fun into your otherwise serious day. Decorative sticks can be traced to the tribal use of “Talking Sticks”, which were symbolic sticks held by members of the tribe while holding council. While holding the stick, you had the right to speak.
As fate would have it I was strolling McCarren Park with my other half and came across a huge beautiful stick, perfect for painting (and maybe using as a curtain rod, like we saw in ABC Home last Xmas). We brought it home, but before I took a paint brush to it, I decided to practice on some smaller sticks.
So, the next day I returned to the park and collected a bunch of small sticks, also known as twiggeritos, about as thick as a pen. I painted them for practice, but ended up falling madly in love with them.
