Added to Kimba’s DIY Day!
Here’s a quick, easy, and cheap little arrangement I put together recently, using some black yardsale sticks that I picked up for $1. I have to admit, I’m really liking sticks these days and have started using them a lot in my decor. This is a $5 yardsale urn that I scored along the way in my yardsale journey and it keeps company with all the creamware. But, I decided it would be a great container for some sticks and feathers, since I saw a beautiful white ironstone container at a shop filled with sticks and feathers and loved the look.
Out came my bags of moss that I have stashed in my craft closet. This is a must-have to keep handy. And the best thing, it’s reusable, so I just recycle it to the next one.
You can see in the first pic, I added some foam to hold everything in place. Didn’t even glue it, just jammed it in the urn and it stays fine. Added the moss, no gluing, it stays in place just fine.
I began adding my black sticks one at a time until they were all arranged the way I liked them. I made sure that they were balanced all around with the height & the direction they were going .
I had picked up a dried bunch at Hobby Lobby on their last dried naturals sale for $2.00. Added those in too.
Then, I took my Hobby Lobby feathers than I bought on the 1/2 price sales along the way and just arranged those around the circle of the sticks.
I had 3 taller feather picks too, so I put those in.
And there you have it, a quick and easy arrangement. I moved out the pinecones and added this in its place on the console table.
Let’s see, I think there’s about $10-12 in this one (including the urn). Not too bad for a new look by using yardsale finds and recycled natural materials.

Your layering is phenomenal. I just love branches too, but adding those feathers? Superb !
