Making a Rainbow Tree

image I love sticks and wool and crafty things. So, just for fun, we decided to make a rainbow tree. The little munchkins went off to collect the sticks. When they were happy with their selection we were ready to begin.

The little munchkins had a go at wrapping the wool around the sticks, with varying results and a few frustrations.

I found wrapping the sticks with wool very satisfying and even slightly therapeutic.

This really was ‘make it up as you go along’. I ended up wrapping all the sticks together with wool. When it still wouldn’t stand up I stuck some smaller branches into the base (which acted as a stand) and attached it all with wool.

I love the idea of decorating stick.  Painted sticks. Sticks wrapped with ribbon. sparkley sticks. Gem sticks. Making decorated sticks into a mobile or a stick man. Create a piece of wall art with a bunch of sticks. The possibilities are endless.

Here’s a few other creations I’ve seen which mooching on the internet. I think they are really cool.
