Want to see how it started out?
This tree had just blown down and we were over there for dinner. I quickly started scooping up the sticks that I wanted. Handsome Hubby was reluctant at first, but I reminded him that there are a lot of women out there who want diamonds... I just wanted sticks. (He changed his tune pretty quickly.)
So I wedged some foam into the champagne bucket, added the sticks, some moss and a leaf that got in my way when I was spray painting the pumpkins.
Subtle sparkle is good.
(And you can be fairly certain that these sticks will be frosted and icy in a couple of weeks.)
