Hi All,

This is another super easy piece of decor, to add a rustic feel to anyone’s home. This piece took me a very short period of time to do and I think it looks fantastic. I really like the rustic element it ads.

The sky is the limit when doing this kind of piece. Check it out and give it a try!




Materials Needed:
  • Scrap Wood
  • Hot Glue
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • White Chalk Paint
  • (1) 1 inch paint brush (Synthetic Bristles)
  • 220 Grit Sandpaper
  • Tack Cloth
  • Clear Finishing Spray
  • Sticks from outside (or from a craft store if you don’t have access to sticks)
  1. Give the scrap wood a light sand with your 220 grit sandpaper.
  2. Wipe with a tack cloth.
  3. Paint the entire piece of scrap wood with your white chalk paint.
  4. Let this fully dry.
  5. Once the chalk paint is fully dry, take your 220 grit sandpaper and distress the wood to your liking.
  6. Wipe with a tack cloth.
  7. Spray down with clear finishing spray.
  8. Let dry.
  9. Next, decide what wood you would like to spell out with your sticks. Take you sticks and break them into small pieces and lay out the stick pieces in the form of the word you want to display.
  10. Once you have decided on the placement of the sticks, start hot gluing the stick pieces down.
  11. Let dry and spray with a clear finishing spray.
  12. Place the decor on a shelf! (*Can also be hung. See below)


* Tips: I chose to use this piece on a shelf, however, if you wish to hang this you can do so by attaching two screws to the back and running some picture wire or thin rope between the two screws. You can then hang this from a hook or nail.

Note:  I used “reclaimed” wood as my scrap wood for this project, hence why you see nail holes.
