A Star Of Sticks
Nature offers many gifts of beauty. Fallen birch branches are one. I LOVE that they can be used for wonderful, unique projects, and are often "free for the taking!" With a little wire, a cutter, and a few birch sticks, I created a hanging star for my door.
This is what I did:
I made a paper template of a star. Mine measures 14" x 14".
I cut birch branches to fit within my template.
I wired them together with 9 gauge wire. You can also tie them with fish line.
I attached a wire hanger.
I've seen a similar craft of painted sticks in a heart shape but I preferred to keep mine natural. Older kids who are able to twist and/or tie will have fun creating shapes of their own!
