I have to plan better next winter. I need some small projects to do in the house while waiting for it to get warm enough for me to head into the Garagemahal, or if all goes well, our new, yet to be named, workshop.

This year I have had a few projects going, but not enough to keep me from being bored.

A lot of searching Pinterest gave me some ideas for quick ideas to keep me busy.

The first was a twiggy letter “S” that got done this weekend. It is an easy project that requires few supplies; a glue gun, large wooden letter, wood stain, garden limb cutters, lots of sticks, and lots of glue sticks.

I bought a large wooden letter at Hobby Lobby 40% off and stained it with walnut stain so it looks a little aged.

To gather twigs at the lake house meant going out to the burn pile and saving some from being burned. The trick is to get the twigs as straight as possible and a consistent size.

Lots and lots of patience are also a requirement for this project.

The steps are easy. Cut the twigs to fit and glue them down.

I love the rustic textural quality of the finished product.
