Winter is all about branches or sticks if you will. I like to make things out of sticks although what I construct doesn’t always stay together. Stick projects always end up looking slightly quirky, which I like. These aren’t the monumental structures a la Patrick Dougherty who I’ve written about before, or the slick stick offerings of Bleu Nature. They are just things I’d like to make–some small, some big.
These are actually offered for sale at At West End. They could also hold candles for a garden party. I’d make them.
I love stick fences and the two below are similar but one is more a screen than a fence. I’m thinking I’ll need one at the new house (whenever that happens). The first is from a Pinterest board I have on fences and gates and the second is in the parking lot at Terrain outside of Philadelphia.
A bit different…the verticals are much more permanent than the sticks.
Last but certainly not least is a twig chandelier. Lit with some excellent quality LED outdoor candles and whoa…a showstopper hanging outside or in. The one below is from Collier West.
