Emily Corson, Designer at The Emporium at Thanksgiving Point, shows how to make them.
Choose a stick with lots of twigs and branches. Remove the leaves. For a rustic look, spray paint the stick with glossy natural brown. For a dramatic look, spray paint it black or white. Set the stick in plaster of paris and leave overnight.
Place the potted stick in an urn and cover with floral foam. Cover the floral foam with moss and secure with clips. Use fresh or silk flowers to build a base around the stick in a coordinating color scheme.
Tie with crystals or ribbons as desired.
Use floral wire to secure floral foam to the base of a chandelier. Cover the floral foam with moss and secure with clips. Arrange smaller sticks symmetrically around the foam
To finish, tie a bow and tack in the bottom of the floral foam.
Stick Window Treatment
Find one large stick or two or three smaller sticks. Either replace your curtain rod with one large stick or use floral wire to adhere sticks to your curtain rod.
Using stickpins, attach ribbon loops along to the top your curtain to hang from your stick window rod. Each ribbon can include bows or ribbon flowers to embellish.
The Emporium includes many gracious offerings for your home
and is located just off I-15 at Point of the Mountain.
