Another Pinterest Success (In my opinion anyway)

I've been a busy little bee lately.  We have an old shed getting ready to fall down so I've been trying to clean it out while it is still standing.  We, along with the previous owners, have been storing lots of scrap wood in it.  So it is a treasure trove of projects waiting to happen.  
 This time I made some imitation tobacco stick stars.  I say imitation because I had to make my own sticks from some 1 x 2 boards.
 This was my inspiration piece I found on Pinterest.  It is on Etsy for $25.  It is 18 inches where as mine is 30 inches.
 I had to go on a little hike with some fencing pliers to get the rusty barbwire.
V helped me with the sanding and I gave her one for her apartment.  She said she thought tinsel would look good on it.   I'm thinking of taking one to the Saddle Club Christmas Dinner gift exchange.  What do you think, barbwire or no barbwire?

Definitely another success!! Barbwire gives it a year round rustic cowboy look which will be good for the Saddle Club. I think for Christmas it would look good wrapped with lights...

My Papaw made me one last year! He used lathe from our house that we remodeled, so I like that it is meaningful. I'd considered buying one, but never did since I had lots of scrap wood laying around. Yours look great!

I like these! And I think I like the barbed wire one best. We made some in a Mom's group that I used to go to, and we put some sprigs of artificial greens, a metal bell and a ribbon on them for Christmas.

$25!! Wow - I guess town people don't have access to what, on the farm, we call scrap wood. Sometimes my husband even burns some, but let's keep that on the DL so he doesn't get lynched.
With all the decrepit, falling down barns & outbuildings in this part of the country, I think I could make a fortune selling 'reclaimed barnboard".
Pretty stars! Definitely barbed wire for the saddle club.

Those are cool! I love pinterest, I get stuck looking at tones of projects I could make. I don't like barbwire decoration (mostly cause Its a pain, lol) but it sure is popular
