Make a Flower Box from Paint Stir Sticks

This pretty flower box would make great wedding decor or look lovely on your own dining room table. Next time I have a painting project, I’m definitely going to save the old paint stirrers. The Wedding Chicks suggest using new paint sticks for this tute, but you could totally go with used ones. Just sand them down, and use paint instead of stain to give them a uniform look. Boom! The materials list below has options for either method.

Minki’s Work Table made these sweet ornaments, and I love the clever way that she used an envelope as her house pattern. Her house ornaments are made from felt, but you could really use any medium or heavy weight fabric for these. Denim or corduroy would look nice for the house, especially if you choose cheery contrasting scraps to make the doors, windows, etc.
