I started by stopping on the side of the road and snagging some old branches that fell down. My Monkey thought I was crazy, but had fun helping me snag them before other traffic came! Then, when I got home Chief REALLY thought I was a nut! So, he just rolled his eyes and said "it's for your craft stuff, huh?" I just smiled and told him to help us get it out of our van! Love that my hubby knows when to shut up! No complaints necessary! They sat in my garage for a bit before I decided to do this:
I posted two pictures of the backing so that you can get a clear shot. To hang them, I taped paper clips on the back after bending the top part out. After I was finished, I used liquid laminate to go over the whole thing so that I can put them all up for next year. I didn't do the stick, I figure there will be more next year! Surely I can find a couple of sticks I like!!! LOL
You could laminate it before you tape the paperclip on, I did some both ways. It really doesn't matter except that you end up sealing the paperclips on when you laminate after. I don't really see a problem with that, but that's just me!
