Craft sticks are the perfect way to add a little touch of nature in your room or office. Plus, it is not hard to find. You can buy one in any craft store in your local area.

A tiny log cabin can maximize the use of the craft sticks since the whole structure is made of wood. You can even make a garden with a park table and benches. For the full log cabin feel, use dark brown paint to coat the sticks. Afterward, add a mini mailbox by the entrance for the finishing touch.
Besides miniature scaled art, craft sticks can also be used to create a décor item for your space. Add a simple shelf space on your wall by creating an octagon piece that can hold items.
You can also craft DIY wall clocks or picture frames. For added effect, use LED strips at the back of these pieces to give them a more vibrant look. Warm yellow light especially goes well with wood.
Craft sticks are also very flexible, so you can top it off in any furniture you have in your home or room. You can put it around your plants, flower pots, cabinets, or even in your bed pole.
Baskets and Bowls

For your kitchen, craft sticks can pass as natural fruit baskets. Similar to how you made your bowl, craft a basket that can withstand the weight of several fruits tacked on top of one another. Why not make a wooden flower vase while you’re at it? Just remember not to pour water inside!
There are tons of ways to use craft sticks, and you just need to be creative and have an open mind on how to use it. With just a little hint of imagination and creativeness, you can come up with a craft stick idea that you will truly love.
